Big data may be the hot topic of the decade, but fifty years from now as these personal records become public, open to researchers, genealogists, social anthropologists and your decedents, how will the information be used to portray you? This talk explores the more personal and sentimental side of big data. Holograms of Holocaust survivors are being generated by researchers at the University of Southern California, broadcast into open space, allowing people to approach and interact with the hologram just as they would a real person. This technology today means people fifty years from now could interact with you based on an algorithmic model using passively and actively generated data such as health records, biometric feedback, digital voice records, facial recognition, behavior, geolocation and social patterns. Augmented reality could place your hologram in settings you really lived in. A Google-glass-like interface may allow people to serendipitously stumble upon information about you geotagged at a physical location. Will you have the choice of being forgotten?
