TED Talk: What do we do with all this big data? – Susan Etlinger

Each Friday I like to share a classic TED talk and this week Susan Etlinger asks the question “What do we do with all this big data?”

Does a set of data make you feel more comfortable? More successful? Then your interpretation of it is likely wrong.

In a surprisingly moving talk, Etlinger explains why, as we receive more and more data, we need to deepen our critical thinking skills because it’s hard to move beyond counting things to really understand them.
