About this event

Overview: New York Times writer and data scientist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz will discuss his new book, EVERYBODY LIES: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Reveals About Who We Really Are, and how new internet data can change how we view the world.

What You’ll Take Away: Seth will describe how internet data, if viewed the right way, can help answer some of the most elusive questions out there, on topics such as ethics and equality, to business, health, gender, and race – questions which would normally be virtually impossible to tackle

Why It’s Important: In a world where endless information is available at the touch of a screen, much of what we think we know about people is dead wrong. We all lie - not only to each other but to doctors, surveys, and most importantly, ourselves. The internet is the ultimate truth serum, and this new way of looking at online data finally reveals the truth about a whole host of things. Unlike most of the current discourse on big data, EVERYBODY LIES demonstrates how we can actually use it to make sense of our world in a completely unprecedented way.
