  1. We had a panel at the IPDPS (http://www.ipdps.org/) conference a couple of weeks ago about Big Data. When I asked the panel "is it possible to anonymize data sets anymore?" no one had an answer. The moderator, from Microsoft, tried to elicit a response, but none of the panelists had thought about the downside to Big Data at all. With people in academia and the US national lab system working with Big Data not seeing these problems, I fear that we are not devoting enough effort to trying to determine IF we can keep anything private and still have a useful data set to work with.
