THE AGE OF BIG DATA

SBS ONE, 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

PRETTY much ev­ery­thing we do th­ese days, from a doc­tor’s ap­point­ment to buy­ing Ital­ian take- away food, leaves a data trail. What hap­pens to all this ac­cu­mu­lated in­for­ma­tion? This BBC doc­u­men­tary looks into its many cur­rent and pos­si­ble fu­ture uses, from a stock­bro­ker who reck­ons he can mine data to make mil­lions, to an LAPD ex­per­i­ment to see whether data could fore­cast crimes that haven’t hap­pened yet. The moral of the story: those who can gather, in­ter­pret and put to use data quick­est will win the fu­ture.
