reality-miningReality Mining: Using big data to engineer a better world
Eagle, Nathan and Kate Greene. Cambridge, MA: The MIT Press, 2014.

Eagle and Greene explore the positive potential of Big Data and ways in which it can be used to develop or improve social systems, while still considering user privacy. The book is divided into five parts, each addressing challenges and opportunities inherent to Big Data on various scales of collection: the individual, the neighborhood and organization, the city, the nation, and the world.
