Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think

 

The Open Technology Institute at the New America Foundation celebrates the book launch of Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think.

Which paint color is most likely to tell you a used car is in good shape?

How did Google searches predict the spread of the H1N1 flu outbreak?

How can data help government be more efficient and politicians get elected?

The key to answering these questions, and many more, is "big data"—our newfound ability to crunch vast collections of information, analyze them instantly, and draw sometimes-profoundly surprising conclusions from them.

Viktor Mayer-Schonberger and Kenneth Cukier, co-authors of Big Data, explain why the revolution is on par with the Internet (or perhaps even the printing press); how it will change the way we think about business, health, politics, education, and innovation; and how we can protect ourselves from its hazards.

PARTICIPANTS Kenneth Cukier Data Editor, The Economist Co-author, Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think
