- We have shared a few examples of how information can be extracted from data (such as in your images). What are other ways humans can leave traces of information with the use of technologies? Share an example or examples with the community.
An example of leaving traces of information through the use of technologies can involve searching up information online, as browsers record web addresses, things that have been viewed and most recently visited pages. By keeping track of what one looks on/up online provides information such as how long one is online, the content being watched, the device being used and even geographic location. This is something that I have noticed while being online as websites often state ‘recently visited’ or ‘visited on ../../..’. This made me realise how much information the internet is holding.
