How to survive/thrive in Data Era

by Hung Lin @hunglin

Data Era?

Before answering this question...

Imaging your life without Google

Imaging your life without World Wide Web

Date Era = CIA

Computers (desktops, laptops, tablets, smart phones) +

Internet (ethernet, wifi, 3G, 4G LTE, ...) +

App (Google, Facebook, Twitter, ...)

In Data Era, we have the unprecedented speed to

  1. Access information
  2. Connect to people
  3. Share our data/knowledge

In Data Era, we can do things only possible in myth

Like, knowing what people are talking about right now?

No, we still cannot!


We know what people are searching right now

We know what people are tweeting right now

Political strategists

Marketing reseachers

That's cool, but what about me?

How much time do I spend on commute?

How much electricity does my dryer use?

Me + Us + Everyone

What's the real time traffic?

The power plants can plan ahead for the peak time
