BIG DATA: The sentient planet - technology as a super sense
6pm Wednesday 6 March 2013
Lecture Theatre, Te Whare Apārangi, Royal Society of New Zealand
11 Turnbull Street, Thorndon, Wellington
The human body has a limited number of senses. Technology enables us to perceive and act beyond these limits and blur the boundaries between the natural and virtual worlds. We can now see what was previously invisible. What does this mean for our future?
Kim Hill discusses these questions and many more with Richard Simpson, Dr Mark Sagar and Dr Cornel de Ronde.

BIG DATA DISCUSSION PANEL SERIES

Big Data is an exhibition running at the newly re-opened National Library until end of April. It examines the nature and implication of big data, especially in relation to the concept of place and how it might serve as a tool in facing the challenges of the current era. The discussion panel series is supporting this exhibition.
