Internet technologists contribute to the practical realization of human rights. First of all, they can improve effectiveness of existing institutions. Unfortunately in the same time Internet technologies give rise to new mechanisms of human rights violations. So we need to create new means, new technologies for human rights protection. We need new technological means, identification and classification of violations, based on predictive analytics. But to improve the situation, we should improve the existing means, and build new models of communication. Perhaps such models could be based on the concept of Web 2.0 and Web 3.0.
Today the Big Data sciences turn its age out. Some years pass, and there will be no need of data scientists, because all process of the big data collection will be automated.

Big data, as we now refer to enormous collections of facts, figures and unstructured information like metadata and tweets has helped us better understand crime rates and predict outbreaks of communicable diseases, and it radically improves our online shopping experiences. But imagine the potential benefits when such data science innovations are applied to the world of human rights. Rather than a digital hazard, computer technology that can handle big data can draw from information about human sentiments and actions to predict potential atrocities reveal patterns of destructive human activities such as trafficking and help weigh prescriptive policies.
