Who cares if the government knows where I am, or can access the AI on my smart phone to predict my schedule. It's not a secret. Perhaps marketers will offer me better deals to the store I frequent. The more advertisers know about me, the better targeted their ads can be, and that helps me get better stuff.

That's where you are wrong, kiddo. It doesn't help you get better stuff, it makes you spend more on stuff you don't need so (((advertisers))) can earn money.

This, and in any bargain the side with the most information is at a significant advantage. If a seller knows how badly I need his product, he can increase the price, or pre-emptively end a discount.

Stores like Amazon do this. To counter game their algorithm, I wrote a program to monitor things I place on my wishlist, and almost every item shows some movement on a day by day basis. In this case, some more information on my side helps me identify opportune times to buy.

I really love the possibilities the smart phone can bring as a power too to law enforcement. For instance, if a crime occurs in a certain location, I think it'd be really cool for Apple and Google to automatically send a list of their users who were in the vicinity to the local police. Perhaps this could even go further, by including enhanced location metadata coupled with time-relevant audio snippets and biometrics to confirm alibis and help clear the name of innocent people from the list of potential suspects. With biometrics we could even see which of the suspected attackers had an elevated heart rate which corresponded to a change in vital signs of the victim. Then you can look at who this person has been talking to, what websites do they visit, and the general tone of their online discourse. Did they demonstrate increased anger? Harnessing the power of A.I. this can be super cool and privacy sensitive. If it helps make us safer, I don't see how anyone could argue against it.

there is lots of disadvantage

first that it can be used not only for good reasons for bad reasons if the government is corrupt and fucked up even there is no corruption in the country you never know when far-left or far-right politics get elected in future and try to target a specific group of people either with religion, color…etc

In order to crack down on racism and discrimination, we actually need more active involvement in our personal lives. This is the era of post-privacy, so we shouldn't shy away from cameras and microphones monitoring and assisting us in our lives. I would love to know for instance if I said something which could be perceived as a micro aggression. Having an AI system detect unintentional hate speech and then alerting me on my phone would be really useful. Perhaps there could even be a penalty system for repeat offenders, so there is also a motive to conform for the better. So many possibility here, in fact a machine could even warn you if you misgender someone or engage in an activity which supports structural racism. This way, we all learn to grow together. When we are young, we accept guidance from our parents, but in this fast moving digital age, our need for advice does not end at 18. A trusted computer advisor to guide us through life is an amazing human evolution, I don't see how anyone could argue against it.

That's not what happens. You get stuff you don't even need from people who paid the most for the ads. "Better stuff" is hard to get. Take buying olive oil as an example: stuff you but at the store is shit, you need to have connections to get the real deal - you need to know a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who makes homemade high-quality product. Ads are not there for you, they are for the companies to convince NPCs to buy useless low-quality high volume shit.

Another amazing possibility that we can utilize with big data, and that so called 'privacy advocates' would chide (seriously, you don't work for the CIA/MI6, it's ok to share) is to help us meet new people. We live in an increasingly diverse world, in which the people walking beside you on the street vary likely did not attend the same primary school as you. They didn't grow up in your neighbourhood, and your guardians didn't exchange recipes. Who do you get to know them? A very cool, disruptive technology that machine learning affords us, is to solve this social problem by automatically alerting us when someone nearby is a positive match for our interests. Perhaps you two have recently watched the same three TED talks, have a similar connection of running shoes, or spend similar hours in the gym! The possibilities are endless. If you two walk by each other, don't you think you should know about it? If you happen to be near a star bucks, there's an opportunity for them to offer you a discount on drinks used for your conversation starter. Let's stop seeing each other for how different we are, and learn our similarities, or should I say… let the machine's do that heavy lifting (ha ha). Who knows, a Syrian refugee could meet the girl of his dreams this way, and it brings our world closer together. When you look at the net positive for humanity, I don't see how anyone could argue against it.

It's about control and access. All of that could also work in ways where people control their own data and whom would've access to it. Privacy is not opposed to the use of Big Data in general.

Imagine years down the line you've become hugely successful/influential, you're doing something you believe in and answering to no one.

One day all of that is threatened when it's revealed to you that 100s of hours of audio/video recording have been held on retainer on cloud storage somewhere, you saying nigger, a video of you jacking off from the perspective of your phone camera, maybe picking your nose, a nasty little sexual favor or secret you told your significant other, something you did when you were young that you seriously regret.

Now I know what you're thinking,"I'm not special, why would the NSA or any organization take any kind of interest in me?". They don't, and they probably won't, but it'd be real easy to store all that information until you do become special, until it's useful.
