Title: Datafication of the World: People, Community, and Physical Space
While Big Data has become a popular phrase in recent years, in this talk, I will discuss how using data to better model, interpret, and represent the world has been a continual process throughout the ages. Data allows us to build models to understand how the world functions, so that we can make better predictions and decisions and view the world from new perspectives. I will use research projects from Microsoft Research to illustrate how data provide novel and richer ways to engage with people, community, and the physical space.
