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: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are, which offers 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.
Seth Stephens-Davidowitz is a Visiting Lecturer at Wharton and a NYTimes Opinion Writer
Richard Kilgarriff is a business book columnist for Harpers' Bazaar and founder of Bookomi.
