If you had access to all the data in the world, what would you do to make the world a better place?
That question sounds hypothetical, but it might not stay that way for long.
With all of the new big data tools being developed, we have access to lots of information that we could only dream about a few years ago. To take just a few examples:
- fitness apps on phones and FitBits track how often people move and use the data to improve healthcare
- businesses track how their customers interact on social media and use the data to make their marketing more effective
- sports teams track every step players take during games and use the data to improve training
So we want to know what your plan is. As big data tools improve, how will you use it? Will you target healthcare? Business? Build exciting new robots? Create a sports empire?
And how will your plan improve people’s lives?
Submit your answer to Hands On and we’ll publish some of the responses next month!
