Have you ever wondered how to beat the bookies?
How does your computer know you might like this song?
Should you be worried about this?...
We can’t answer that for you, but Man vs Big Data does explore the numerous ways in which ‘Big Data’ has, sometimes imperceptibly, infiltrated our lives. Everything we do leaves a trail of data behind, from buying something on a credit card, to using a GPS-enabled mobile phone – whether you know it or not, like it or not, Big Data is now a part of modern life.
Heralded as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it is now more crucial than ever to learn about how data is affecting the way we live. Man vs Big Data proves that this topic is one of the most important subjects facing us today and helps you get to grips with what that means for you.
