Privacy in Data Science
Apart from the privacy of visitors to this site, there are privacy principles that apply to Data Science as well. Most of the original data sources contain personal data in some form. This is because these data sources are linked directly to production systems that make use of this data as part of their business.
It is up to data engineers and data scientists to develop privacy processes that protect and preferably obfuscate any personal information. In most analytical scenarios, detailed personal information does not add any specific value because the topic of study is the behaviour of groups of people behaving similarly or in a predictable way.
