Designing Big Data

Today there is more data on Earth than human beings. A lot more. Analysts and algorithms can predict your next decision before you’re even faced with it. How does design fit into this equation? How can you leverage it to enhance a users’ interaction experience? If you find yourself pondering big-data-related questions, or want to figure out what to do with this ever increasing firehose of information, then you need to join us at Designing Big Data.
