Virginia Schoolboy Uses Big Data To Tackle Bullying

28 January 2014 Last updated at 00:12 GMT  The use of big data has come under increasing scrutiny since the former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden leaked documents about the US government's electronic spying programmes last year.  But it's not just governments who can use and access the digital information we generate online every day. Corporations use big data to gather information about consumer preferences and to sell products.  And now Viraj Puri, a 13-year-old schoolboy from Virginia, is hoping to harness its power - to tackle bullying. He showed the BBC's Jane O'Brien the website - currently in development - which would enable families to pinpoint bullying incidents.  Filmed by Allen McGreevy; edited by Bill McKenna.
