Most of the news we hear about data breaches and data manipulation is what we see in the headlines.
What I’m getting at is that when the data is manipulated, it is not the data itself that is being manipulated. It is the algorithms that have been trained to understand the data and decide what to do with it. While it is not the data itself that is being manipulated, it is the algorithms that have been trained to manipulate the data.
Google is a big company. While Google is a company that is constantly changing, it also has a bunch of algorithms that it uses to understand what the data is about and what it should do with it. In 2012, for example, Google’s AdWords algorithm was trained to “find” keywords that were used by people that were selling a product.
This is where “data mining” comes in. In order to manipulate the data, Google needs to train its algorithms to understand what the data is about and what it should do with it. This has been done before, but not in this way. Instead, Google has been training its data algorithms and applying them to the data it collects, which is the information we put on the web.
This is just another form of data mining. This time there are two companies in the Google empire that are doing this. One of these (Baidu) has been a Google subsidiary since 2007. The other (Yandex) is actually a small part of Google. This doesn’t make the entire company any less powerful, it just means they have less oversight. Both companies are also working on using the same algorithm to determine what users search for and when they search for them.
Google is pretty good at figuring out what you like and dislike. However, they do not know what you do. You are on your own. But just because they don’t know you doesnt mean there is anything they can’t figure out. Which brings us to the issue of privacy.
Google has been pretty cagey about data privacy lately (see “Dumb down our search engine”, “We love your data”, “The most important thing is the fact that everything you do on the internet is now being done on Google”), but its recent move to send sensitive information to Google has done the company some damage. We’ve written about various privacy-related stories on Google in the past few years, but this latest move is by far the most egregious.
Google has also been stepping up its efforts to get the government involved in the fight. In May, Google said it would begin sending emails to users of Gmail and other internet email services about sending your personal information to the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Program, which collects internet data and uses it for a variety of purposes, including national security.
