Whether you’re on social media or surfing the web, you’re probably sharing more personal data than you realize. That can pose a risk to your privacy—even your safety. At the same time, big datasets could lead to huge advances in fields like medicine. In NOVA's Secrets in Your Data, host Alok Patel explores these issues on a quest to understand what happens to all the data we’re shedding and explores the latest efforts to maximize benefits—without compromising personal privacy.

NOVA's Secrets in Your Data premiered Wednesday, May 15 on PBS. Watch the video below; Professor Ramesh Raskar's segment begins at the 41 minute mark.
