The Big Data Revolution

20140602-Nota-571-1Last week I was in London to attend a seminar by Viktor Mayer-Schönberger at the Data Science Institute of the Imperial College. Viktor is the Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation at the University of Oxford. His research focuses on the role of information in a networked economy. His talk was on "Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think", from the title of his latest book, shortlisted for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award. Though not directly involved in the mainstream of big data processing algorithms and techniques, he gave a very interesting talk on what characterizes the Big Data phenomenon and how it can be propelled by suitable data management policies. I drew a sketchnote summarizing the talk, which you can download HERE.
