Over the past three decades, our daily lives have changed slowly but dramatically. Boundaries between leisure and work, public space and private space, and home and office have blurred and become permeable. How many of us now work from home, our wireless economy allowing and encouraging us to work 24/7? How many of us talk to our children while scrolling through e-mails on our BlackBerrys? How many of us feel overextended, as we are challenged to play multiple roles – worker, boss, parent, spouse, friend, and client – all in the same instant? Dalton Conley, social scientist and writer, provides us with an X-ray view of our new social reality.

We are Big Data: The Future of the Information Society

We are Big Data: The Future of the Information Society by Sander Klous
English | PDF,EPUB | 2016 | 205 Pages | ISBN : 9462391823 | 4.38 MB

This book demonstrates the inevitability of a continuously growing role of data in our society and it stresses that this role does not need to be threatening: to the contrary, collection and analysis of data can help us prevent traffic jams, suppress epidemics, or produce tailor made medicine. The authors sketch the contours of a new information society, in which everything will be measured from our heartbeat during our morning run to the music we listen to and our walking patterns through department stores and they discuss the resistances within the society that have to be overcome.
Sander Klous holds a PhD in High Energy Physics and contributed to the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN (Nobel prize 2013). Klous works at KPMG and is professor in Big Data at the University of Amsterdam.
