Using Big Data to Improve Traffic Flow

The digital sign flashes “Accident Ahead – Proceed With Caution” as drivers head along Interstate 70 in the St. Louis region. That usually means long delays for drivers as traffic builds up behind the accident. This also means a potentially serious accident that requires an immediate response from emergency personnel.

Mizzou Engineering’s Chadha protecting your data, identity

While hacking databases is the main way for interested parties to gain users’ personal information, it’s not the only possibility. Intrepid attackers can use perfectly benign means to do so. How? By using readily available aggregate data — for example: census data, medical data focused on how many people in an area suffer from a specific illness, consumer trend data, etc. — and using it to focus on specific individuals.
