That’s not what Big Data promises. But it’s what Big Data can deliver. And few know this worrisome new world better than Adam Tanner, our next Ramsay Luncheon speaker on Tuesday, January 27th.

 

Adam Tanner is a Fellow at Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science. He was Reuters’ Balkan’s bureau chief, has reported from Moscow, Berlin and Washington, and writes frequently for Forbes Magazine on technology.

 

His new book on the perils of Big Data (not government surveillance, but snoopy companies) has been called “a masterpiece” by the Huffington Post and “one of the best books of the year” by the Washington Post.WhatStaysInVegas-2

 

So join us to learn just how easy it is to know everything about us, from our health records to our unhealthy indiscretions – and what we can do about it.
