Abstract

Edward Snowden’s revelations in 2013 about the nature and scale of data-gathering in the two intelligence agencies, the NSA in the US and its UK sister agency, GCHQ, added a new dimension to a debate already underway about the transformation of intelligence-gathering in a Big Data age. There is no doubt that Snowden’s revelations provided the bow-wave of a fundamentally critical and anti-state stance on the intelligence questions in hand. Such a critical stance is reflected in much of the academic literature about Big Data. In this chapter, such concerns are critically appraised.
