Big Data: Measuring And Predicting Human Behaviour

Unlock the data driven power of networked computer systems and smart cards. Everything we do generates data, from shopping at the supermarket, riding on public transport, to phoning a friend. This data is opening up a new era for our understanding of human behaviour, policy making and business processes which depend upon this understanding. Research shows how data can give us insight into the risk of an upcoming stock market crash; decrease delays in measuring the spread of illness; or even allow us to predict where crimes may occur. You will gain an overview of the state of the art in big data research across a range of domains, including economics, crime and health.
