Big Data: does size matter?

April 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£3

Not one of our events, but may well still be of interest. Run by Skeptics in the pub, Nottingham, this talk is all about Big Data, it’s uses, impacts, benefits, risks and so forth; all in a form understandable to us mere mortals. From the overview:

Big Data knows where you’ve been and who your friends are. It knows what you like and what makes you angry. It can predict what you’ll buy, where you’ll be the victim of crime and when you’ll have a heart attack. Big Data knows you better than you know yourself, or so it claims.
But how well do you know big data?

Access to the upper conference area is via an external door beyond the main door (there’s usually a sign out). There is a smaller bar upstairs, but it’s not normally open until after the talk, so best fuel up in the main bar before heading up (exit via main door, take hard right, go up the stairs).
