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.This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

This talk was simply awesome, worth listening.
Calling this big data is stretching it a bit too far, when all that social cops is doing is remodelling traditional data collection methods into it IT enabled data which is easily accessible and hence usable. Well there are already many softwares out there so I am really wondering what is the novelty in her idea
which algo you people use for this
This is an excellent presentation! Shows just how powerful data really is. I think nations need to encourage citizen data scientists and start democratizing data sets.
Such a remarkable difference a big data can make in our society to make our world a better place. Keep it up, dear Prukulpa! Wish you all the very best.
congratulations data corps...you are doing great work
Its amazing but most of innovation is a potential future disaster. Neuclear bomb was told bring peace .. Till when god knows. Ofcoutse data is useful but it has vulnerabilities.
Really amazing presentation and in love with the concept.
