Of Rocket Ships and Washing Machines: Data Technology for People

Grand Ballroom (NY Hilton)

The story of Big Data technology has centered on engines, algorithms, and statistical methods for data analysis. Less has been said -and too little has been done-regarding technology to improve the lives of data analysts. In this talk I’ll highlight recent research from Berkeley and Stanford targeted at improving productivity across the data lifecycle, using technology to address the scarcest resource in Big Data: people.
