On an average day, internet searches worldwide amass about eight trillion gigabytes of data. This staggering amount of information can reveal who we are in greater detail than we ever thought possible.
In his new book “Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are” (Harper Collins, May 2017), Seth Stephens-Davidowitz uses big data to dive into topics such as economics, ethics, and sports. He offers insights that can help us understand ourselves better, revealing biases deeply embedded within us, information that can change our culture, and the questions we are afraid to ask that might be essential to our health — both mental and physical.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
