The human face of Big Data

Big data in the real world

Article comments

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, the app enables people to share and compare their lives for seven days (September 26-October 2) using the sensors in their phones and by responding to thought-provoking questions with others around the globe about their dreams, interests and views.

 Join us as we look at some real-life examples of how big data is currently used in the real world.
