Why is Big Data transforming the way we live, work and think? What really is Big Data, beyond the hype? How will Big Data offer new sources of revenue to businesses, and how will organizations change in the Big Data age? These are just a few of the questions Viktor Mayer-Schonberger has addressed in over a hundred presentations since the publication of the book he co-authored, the international bestseller Big Data. In his speeches he has looked at Big Data's role in changing the face of everything from product development and scientific discovery, to human learning and health care, transportation, retail, finance and marketing.An internationally acclaimed and sought-after keynote speaker, Mayer-Schonberger has addressed a wide spectrum of audiences, from high-level corporate board retreats to large audience conventions, including such companies as IBM, SAP, Microsoft, Roche, Haier and Huawei, professional organizations such as the ITU, the IAPP, and the AACC.*Every speech is customized to optimize the impact, and he uses compelling visuals to illustrate and emphasize the main points he's making.With a media presence that straddles the international print media, such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, the Guardian, Die Zeit, Der Spiegel, El Pais, or Le Monde, international broadcast media such as CNN, BCC, PBS or CCTV, and online media such as Ars Technica, Daily Kos, and Wired, Mayer-Schonberger brings special recognition to events where he speaks.Big Data is not Mayer-Schonberger's only area of expertise.

More generally, he has spoken about the evolution of the information economy, and how our work and our lives change because of our digital tools and networks.

Big Data's Role in Future Education

Education can greatly benefit from big data analysis at pretty much all
levels. For example, from analyzing the rich data that gets captured
through electronic books and online courses for the first time in history,
authors will know what works (and what does not) in their textbooks,
teachers will understand which of their problem sets causes
problems to many students, and schools learn what teaching materials to
pick to optimize the educational experience of their pupils.
