PAPod 161 - The Story of Understanding Data by Understanding What is NOT Represented…Meet Abraham Wald, Mathematician

17Feb

Big Data means you have lots of information that you can use to predict and manage your systems.  Big data has been an amazing advantage for our organizations.  We need data, lots of it, to tell where we are and where we need to go

But, just but, could there be so much data that you are biased towards using the data no matter what it means to your organizaton?  Data at all cost?  Data first?  We only get what we measure?  You must be able to account for everything.

... or should you?

Here is a quick story about what the data did not show and how important that was to the future of the free world.
