Join Bookomi's Richard Kilgarriff in conversation with Harvard-trained economist and former Google data scientist, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz.
The two will discuss Seth's new book Everybody Lies: What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are, which which uses Big Data to offer surprising insights into the human psyche.
Unlike the curated versions of ourselves that we present to the outside world, our Google searches expose our deepest desires, hopes, fears and prejudices.
Therefore, according to Stephens-Davidowitz, the power of Big Data is not in its size, but in its ability to allow data scientists to examine information in a new, original and exciting way.
