"The promise of big data is that we do what we’ve been doing all along – profiling – but make it better, less discriminatory, and more individualized. That sounds acceptable if the aim is simply to prevent unwanted actions. But it becomes very dangerous if we use big-data predictions to decide whether somebody is culpable and ought to be punished for behaviour that has not yet happened." (Mayer-Schönberger & Cukier, Big Data, p.166)
