Although big data is very good at detecting correlations, especially subtle correlations that an analysis of smaller data sets might miss, it never tells us which correlations are meaningful.

Data analytics is a complex field, a fact that gets even more complicated when you factor in machine learning, deep learning, and other components of AI that are often used to analyze data. As such, there’s a huge demand for data scientists who are talented in various fields, purely because the job is heavily multidisciplinary.

Take, for instance, cookies, the pieces of code that are used to collect user data from websites for advanced analytics. While many countries now require websites to inform users about the use of cookies to collect data from browsers, there’s no way to know how much data or specific types of data that is collected via such websites.

Plus, there’s always the issue of data security when AI systems are handling massive amounts of data across networked, distributed databases. In many automated industries such as the telecoms industry, stolen data, for instance, can be used to launch automated spam calls like robocalls, a popular nuisance in many countries globally.

AI systems, even the most basic forms, are usually very complex, with tons of algorithms obscuring what the system is actually doing under the hood. As such, any data used for such processing is usually hidden from view, which raises questions about transparency and privacy of such data.
