Data is more than numbers and database files. In this video, learn about the underlying connection data has with humanity.
- So, every day, each of us tells a data story. Sometimes it's recorded and sometimes not, and I think the thing to really grasp onto is to think very expansively about what that data is, how it's captured, and how it tells your story. Here's an example. You wake up in the morning and you call out to your home device and ask for a playlist of your favorite songs. You've told a story and had a data conversation. You get in your car and you notice that there's some sort of a detour, an accident up ahead, so you ask your GPS to reroute you. You've had a story, you've told a story, and someone else has received a story about you. (upbeat music) So, think about as we're driving along here, look at how many devices have some sort of an electrical impulse. There's a traffic light there, and I see a camera on top of it. There's probably 10,000 phones just in that apartment building alone. There's blinking sensors if someone is walking across the street. You get the picture. Data tells a story not just of the thing that's embedded or the device that exists or even the feed that that one device gives off. But as you can see, as you move along here, there's someone recording my destination. They may not know me and they may not care about me and they may not even think that they're observing me, but I'm telling a story by my very act of being in a world of sensors and recordation. If we think about, collectively, how many lives are impacted by the simple act of noticing, whether we're noticing in an ephemeral way because this traffic sign here records me as I flash by to tell me my speed, and then doesn't save it, or in a more permanent way if I get a ticket and it goes into a public database where you can look up my name and find out that I could be a lousy driver. In any case, as we move about the world every day, data tells a story about each and every one of us. (upbeat music) You get to work, maybe share pictures from a great trip that you had over the weekend, and people from all over the world, some of whom you don't even know, hit the like button or the smiley face or emoji button on your social sharing. You get on the phone and you collaborate with a Webex call or a video call with the picture of your face shared with maybe millions of people, or maybe just 10 people who are in different geographies. You've told a story. And so it goes every single day, not just in the work world, but in the play world, all around in our personal and our business lives. Data tells a story.
