Big Data


Since Aristotle, we have fought to understand the causes behind everything. But this ideology is fading. In the age of big data, we can crunch an incomprehensible amount of information, providing us with invaluable insights about the what rather than the why. We're just starting to reap the benefits: tracking vital signs to foresee deadly infections, predicting building fires, anticipating the best moment to buy a plane ticket, seeing inflation in real time and monitoring social media in order to identify trends. But there is a dark side to big data. Will it be machines, rather than people, that make the decisions? How do you regulate an algorithm? What will happen to privacy? Will individuals be punished for acts they have yet to commit? In this groundbreaking and fascinating book, two of the world's most-respected data experts reveal the reality of a big data world and outline clear and actionable steps that will equip the reader with the tools needed for this next phase of human evolution.

Reinventing Capitalism in the Age of Big Data


Markets have long been acknowledged to be a superior mechanism for managing resources but until the advent of big data, they largely functioned better in theory than in practice. Now, as ideal markets are within reach because of vastly greater access to information, we are on the verge of a major disruption. As data becomes a more valuable asset than cash, the rules for surviving and thriving are changing. Reinventing Capitalism is a provocative look at how data is reinventing markets and, in so doing, is ushering in an era where the firm is no longer predominant. With richer and more comprehensive information about human wants and needs, an economy powered by data offers the possibility of increased abundance, equality, and resilience. The data-driven markets that will thrive in this environment are far better than firms at organizing human endeavors, meaning that finance driven capitalism is being displaced by its more efficient, moresustainable, and more democratic disruptor: data capitalism.

Big Data


Megbüntethetnek-e minket olyasmiért, amit el sem követtünk? - Hogyan kémkednek utánunk az okos elektromos mérőórák? - Milyen összefüggés van a hurrikánok és a félkész epres sütemény eladása közt? - Milyen színű használt autót érdemes vásárolnunk? - Hogyan leplezhető le a sportban a bundázás? A válaszokat a big data módszere, vagyis az óriási adattömeg rendszerezése és elemzése rejti, amely révén meghökkentő következtetésekre juthatunk. Nincsenek többé titkok: az adatok mindent elárulnak az életünkről. A bid data forradalma a következő években megváltoztatja majd az üzleti világgal, az egészségüggyel, a politikával, az oktatással és az innovációval kapcsolatos gondolkodásmódunkat, és alkalmazása az élet egyre több területén elterjed. Helytelen felhasználása azonban új veszélyeket is hordoz: fenyegetheti például a személyiségi jogokat, sőt még az is előfordulhat, hogy valakit olyasmiért ítélnek el, amit el sem követett, egyszerűen azért, mert a big data képes előre jelezni a jövőbeli viselkedést. Ebben a kristálytiszta logikával felépített, rengeteg meglepő ismeretet tartalmazó könyvben két zseniális szakember magyarázza el, mi is a big data, hogyan változtatja meg életünket, és mit tehetünk azért, hogy megvédjük magunkat a veszélyeitől.
