Big Data, Small World - Kirk Borne
Every month we scour the internet seeking out data science videos that educate and delight.
I hope these videos prove to be a valuable resource to you and that you will visit regularly (and invite your friends too).
In this video, we're proud to bring you a TEDx video from one of our friends - Big Data, Small World by Kirk Borne.
Kirk Borne is a data scientist and astrophysicist who worked for NASA for almost 20 years - including working on NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the Space Science Data Operations projects.
An avid tweeter and re-tweeter, Kirk spends far too much time on Twitter - but claims that he doesn't do as much as people think he does!
In this video Kirk discusses the inter-connectedness of people and data, demonstrating that Big Data narrows the gap between all of us, making the world a smaller place.
He also explains the connections between himself, diapers, Kevin Bacon, beer, Donald Rumsfeld and pop-tarts...
Enjoy the video!
