Re: Biometric big-data
These systems must be specially designed for the high performance thats why we get so quick and efficient response from them.

Re: Hackable?
Maybe you are right. With new technologies come new and improved ways to break into those security technologies and hack them. Same can also be done with these biometric security but that does not mean that we stop putting our effort and stop taking security measures from our side.

Re: Biometric big-data
I think it is important that we store biometric data along with other information too. As this will help you in authenticating the person more reliably.

Re: Biometric big-data
@Alison I don't know how USA passport Biometrics are stored or whether NSA have access to that database. The speed shouldn't surprise you. The tracking data used by advertisers enables them to have an online auction every time you click a website to decide who will target you with the next Advertisement. The data they hold is unregulated and uncontrolled. Government  Biometrics are held to protect citizens and detect criminals and terrorists. Governments can be voted out....

Hackable?
While I find all talk of such things creepy and Big-Brotherish I also completely understand why any organization concerned about physical security of its employees or cybersecurity of its data would be looking at these solutions.

I tend to fall on the side of cynics though: As with any other security measure, wouldn't hackers ultimately figure out a way to override or outsmart even the best biometrics solutions? I've already seen reports of fingerprint hacks...

Re: Biometric big-data
I'd think a lot of that information is already stored in the NSA's database, to be honest. It wouldn't surprise me if if they have data from DMVs from all 50 states plus other sources. I'm amazed at the speed with which this system must work if it can deal with so many people approaching simultaneously.

Re: Biometric-big data
@Marianne. You are right that there always some snags associated with emerging technologies but we have to weight cost vs benefit ratio. I think multifactor biometric would certainly help us in many areas where we found ourselves lacking. Of course, there is bound to be resistance from some quarters in the name of privacy etc. But the point is , that we have already compromised our privacy in many domains, if multifactor biometric protect us from ferocious attacks from terrorists or other malicious element it's not a bad bargain.

Re: Biometric big-data
Netcrawl, I think a lot of the data generated from a mobile device is much more personal to the user and can be linked to their everyday activities, so that can put users at risk if this data is correlated with other data banks. Biometric data is even more sensitive and we need to be sure we know how to contol access to that before it is uploaded into a big mega-database.

Cost and benefit analysis
To justify the merits of big data, one would need to conduct cost-benefit studies and compare the ROIs. Yes, a list of potentials and drawbacks of big data is a daunting task but the end result should show postive ROIs quantitatively and qualatively (the probability of saving future lives would be high).

Re: Biometric big-data
Technicall speaking the data created in mobile is not different from data created in the web or IT infrastructure, analyzing this data is a daunting task, in order to get some good results, it need to be captured and analyzed effectively. By using big data we can now analyze its potential, potential applications and drawbacks, and eventually answer some of the most frquently questions about mobile.
