TED Talks of the year about BigData
2014 is getting to its end… People enjoy looking back these days, making a retrospective exercise to gain perspective for the upcoming year. I’m a big fan and loyal follower of the TED Talks… It’s enriching to be exposed to others’ points of view on matters you are regularly dealing with -like Big Data-, but also to learn about new trends and to understand events changing people’s lives.
I’ve wanted to bring to Bigdata-doctor.com a selection of the best Big Data related Videos in TED 2014. I hope you enjoy them!
Kenneth Cukier, the Data Editor of The Economist, explaining how more data allows us to see “new” and allows us to see “better”
Anne Milgram, Attorney General of New Jersey, showing how to use better data and better statistical modeling to fight crime and make everybody’s lives safer
The amazing Jennifer Golbeck -I’m a big fan of…- pointing out to the implications of the “likes” to classify people and the need of putting the information control back in the authors’ hands
The outstanding journalist Gleen Greenwald, on how privacy needs to be preserved even if you don’t have anything to hide
The respond of Richard Ledgett (NSA) to Snowden’s about the balance between security and protecting privacy
And Snowden himself on fighting back for the privacy rights in the Internet
The renowned internet security expert Keren Elazari on how hacking endures the digital immune system
This list could grow forever, because the quality and the relevance of the TED talks created in 2104 has been unprecedentedly high… but let’s keep it like that by now. I hope you enjoy it!
