From Beavers to Smart Cars to Ivory Coast with Sandy Pentland
BIG DATAMay 29, 2013
Alex “Sandy” Pentland has worked using data to solve any number of problems--enough to realize that privacy issues can be overcome when working with Big Data. The MIT and World Economic Forum researcher addressed the Center for Geographic Analysis annual conference recently to discuss “data commons” and the power they may hold for public good. Editor’s Note: Pentland will address the audience at Navigate, June 21, as part of a cast of provocative thinkers.
