ABSTRACT:
Today Big Data is one of the hottest buzzwords in technology, but from an anthropological perspective Big Data has been with us for millennia, in forms such as census information collected by ancient civilizations. The next 10 years will be shaped primarily by new algorithms that make sense of massive and diverse datasets and discover hidden value. Could we ignite our creativity by looking at data from a fresh perspective? What if we designed for data like we design for people? This talk will explore the secret life of data from an anthropological point of view to allow us to better understand its needs -- and its astonishing potential -- as we embark to create a new data society.
