1. Big data in the real world
A new free mobile application has been launched today as part of The Human Face of Big Data event, which is the first real visualisation of big data in action and aimed at inspiring a global conversation about humanity’s new ability to collect, analyse, triangulate and visualise vast amounts of data in real time. Hosted by Rick Smolan, co-creator of the groundbreaking "Day in the Life" series and other globally crowdsourced projects. Join us as we look at some real-life examples of how big data is currently used in the real world.
