The dangers of webcrawled datasets
Bell, G.B. (2010) The dangers of webcrawled datasets. First Monday, 15 (2).
This article highlights legal, ethical and scientific problems arising from the use of large experimental datasets gathered from the Internet — in particular, image datasets. Such datasets are currently used within research into topics such as information forensics and image processing. This paper strongly recommends against Webcrawling as a means for generating experimental datasets, and proposes safer alternatives.
