  • How Big Data Can Influence Decisions That Actually Matter | Prukalpa Sankar | TEDxGateway

    Its crazy how big data is used to solve some kinds of problems and not others.
    Prukalpa Sankar reimagines a world where we can catch criminals at the scene of the crime – not years later, reroute cars in real time to prevent traffic congestion that we all hate so much, predict if a child is going to drop out of school before they even knows it and eradicate a disease as it breaks, not 1000s of deaths later.


    Prukalpa is the co-founder of SocialCops, a data intelligence company. Their platform brings the entire decision-making process to one place — from collecting primary data and accessing secondary data to merging internal data and visualizing data via easy-to-use dashboards. They work with over 150 organizations in 7+ countries, including the Gates Foundation, Tata Trusts, Government of India, Unilever, and Frost & Sullivan. SocialCops was on the 2016 Forbes Asia 30 Under 30 and Fortune India 40 Under 40 lists.

The mid-decade turning point we are now experiencing is an unprecedented ability to process these data, to generate insights. These insights, gleaned from new data processing techniques, can impact how we shop, how we find jobs, dating, and even how doctors diagnose illnesses.

    Dr. Charles W. Stryker is the Founder and President of a professional advisory firm, Venture Development Center, Inc. (VDC), and he has been recently recognized as the Data Innovator of the Year 2013. His business has a focused practice of assisting “Big Data” firms in creating, developing and commercializing Information Services properties.

    He has served on the board of a number of both public and private companies. His current board appointments include: Avention, Data Mentors, Datamyx, Geoscape, Innography, Jobvite, NetFactor, Netwise, RDC, The Retail Equation, Triton Technologies, and V12.

    Dr. Stryker has received the BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering and the Ph.D. in Computer Science from New York University. He has been an active speaker and author on the topic of database product development. In addition to these academic credentials, from 1991 to 1999 Dr. Stryker was a part time faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School where he taught a number of courses in its Entrepreneurial Center.
