Event Description

For the first time in our history, it's possible to analyze the entire input of our society at once.  All the books, all the pictures, all the people: each is a corpus of information now amenable to computational processing.  In this talk, I'll give some examples and talk about the implications of being able to crunch data on the largest possible scales.
