What gets budget owners excited is what you can do for their top and bottom lines. Flashy video pieces mean almost nothing.

The woman introducing him was my statistics professor at Kennesaw State University. She's awesome. William Hakes came to KSU in 2011 to speak at SAS Day where I presented. Great Speaker!

Can say one thing , my eyes are open for opportunities.Thanks Will.
Vijay Shankar (5 years ago)
Thanks Will for the great lecture. I am an engineer and am presently doing an MBA. Can you suggest more avenues to learn more about big data analytics? As an engineer, I am not bad at Math and stats and as an MBA I am learning to understand business as such. I am sure over a period of time I'll need to understand big data analytics and use it :)

And it has great power to do good, just like any other piece of technology. There are benefits and harms to everything.
rhrabar0004 (5 years ago)
This is terrifying. It is creating the framework for absolute tyranny if/when this technology eventually falls into the hands of an unaccountable state. Without privacy one cannot rebel or protest against authority. I embrace technology for the most part, but after watching this part of me thinks Orwell was being conservative in his warning. Everything we do is already logged, once the analytics are worked out, we might as well say checkmate.
