The Human Face of Big Data


Big Data is defined as the real time collection, analyses, and visualization of vast amounts of information. In the hands of Data Scientists this raw information is fueling a revolution which many people believe may have as big an impact on humanity going forward as the Internet has over the past two decades. Its enabling us to sense, measure, and understand aspects of our existence in ways never before possible.
The Human Face of Big Data captures an extraordinary revolution sweeping, almost invisibly, through business, academia, government, healthcare, and everyday life.


    “Every powerful tool has a dark side. Every last one. Anything that is going to change the world by definition has to be able to change it for the worst as well as for the better. It doesn’t work one way without the other.”

  • From The Human Face of Big Data
    “During the first day of a baby’s life, the amount of data generated by humanity is equivalent to 70 times the information contained in the Library of Congress.”
  • From The Human Face of Big Data
    “Each of us now leaves a trail of digital exhaust, an infinite stream of phone records, texts, browser histories, GPS data and other information, that will live on forever.”
