vete a vender Big Data mercadillo sabionda. soy informatico nena
Thanks for the very informing video! I enjoyed it :)
Informative and balanced.
0:18 bit extreme. I don't think it goes that far but ok.
Big data. Big hard drive.
WRONG. I use adblocker like most intelligent people. 0:04
Most of this was very tech illiterate. It would've been better to bring on an actual data scientist rather than just some broadcaster.
I don't like being blackmailed, so I stopped watching when she said: "If you stop watching now <...> in five year times some recruiting algorithm will reject you for that job as an astronaut". Even assuming this was just a way of making the point that my online data could be used to assess my application for a job, it was arrogant to suggest that a prospective employer would regard as positive watching this video which, according to the comments, seems to have pretty basic and low-quality information.
Useless data if I may say. What the recruiting algorithm knows about us through this Big data is..... 57 carved notches of something, it doesn't know what or why too. Big data has no identify pattern on the human spirit. People are not computers, they don't work on 101011100000110000 patterns. "Feeling" are peoples pattern something that no computer will ever understand, because it won't ever have a "heart".
Politics was reduced to a marketing campaign decades ago. The size of the data sets has nothing to do with it. Here's a simple principle: A small random sample will be more informative than a large non-random sample.
"Certainly t helped people to know which voters to target." How do you know that? What were the validity coefficients for their predictions? How do you get valid predictions out of non-probability samples, which all samples of attitude data are?
Data is not information. Information consists of data that reduce uncertainty. The problem with any data, big or small, is that it will be taken as informative when it is not.
"Politics is about the content of the messages, not the platform that delivers them."This is most patently misinformed thing I've ever heard.How did this statement make it in? This is a fundamental misunderstanding of everything about politics.Maybe in an ideal world, that's what it would be about. However, in our world, the medium significantly impacts the message, whether that's method of distribution, the voicing of the message or the form in which its delivered.
If it's called digital data because you can count it on your digits. So, what's an example of non-digital data?
Back in 2012 the Guardian was giddy with excitement that Barrack Obama's re-election team were building a vast digital data operation that for the first time combined a unified database on millions of Americans with the power of Facebook to target individual voters to a degree never achieved before. It's only now that the electorate are voting against the Guardians preferred candidates that suddenly 'big data' has become undesirable to them... Obama, Facebook and the power of friendship: the 2012 data electionA unified computer database that gathers and refines information on millions of potential voters is at the forefront of campaign technology – and could be the key to an Obama winEd Pilkington and Amanda Michel in New YorkFri 17 Feb 2012 14.29 EST
😂In order to keep DATA out of your "Byiyizzuissizznes"Don't Care
This older American needed closed-captioning to understand her but the illustrations are good. The subject is timely.
