    Chapter from the book: Richterich, A. 2018. The Big Data Agenda: Data Ethics and Critical Data Studies.


    The final chapter ties together insights from the book’s overall analysis, specifically in relation to the critical perspectives and theory introduced in Chapter 2. It emphasises two main issues: firstly in the field of big data-driven public health research, one can observe complex (inter-)dependencies between academic research and the commercial interests of internet and tech corporations. This is notably related to two main developments: on the one hand, data access is often controlled by these companies; on the other hand, these companies incentivise research at the intersection of technology and health (e.g. through funding and selective data access).
