“I suspect that in future people will record even conversations and use it for analyzing behavior, and further possibly leveraging it to Big Data.”
It is ironic to take the conversation to an argument which breeds argument and even hatred. There are ways to trick people to comment on something which is irrelevant to them at some point in time. This might take a form of tit for tat speculating in a most basic language. People get to become child (in the context of behavior) and think about the system going back to the same level, it will suck, isn’t? We behave differently at different places and since we have multiple personality within ourselves, it would be a great test for us to be diligent all the time. But think, we are here talking and anticipating the future in every possible ways, and guess what we think first and then make it to reality sometimes. It takes a cyclic nature and mostly influenced by the habits we adopt, it could be sensed to make an impact in investment banking because the big fishes are mostly under the limelight of top management. It could be said that it might go anywhere, positive or negative at times but with technology growing faster with voice recognition could lead to a disaster of personal freedom.
It could be advantageous for CIA, FBI, DEA etc…but what if their personnel turns to guilty? Will they continue using it? Also, stats says there are more than 30% innocent prisoners in states, will they use for them?
Think about interviewer recording your conversations to prove that you have come here before and showed interest in other areas? What would you do, how interviewer will react?
I have plenty to write, but no time…later.
