c. If the potential benefits to society are so great, can society do something that will increase doctors’ use of such intelligent systems?
3. What are some of the major privacy concerns in employing intelligent systems on mobile data?
4. Identify some cases of violations of user privacy from current literature and their impact on data science as a profession.
5. Search the Internet to find examples of how intelligent systems can facilitate activities such as empowerment, mass customization, and teamwork.
