Data Analytics

Welcome & Opening Remarks at Elevate Data Analytics with Jesse Hirsh of the Academy of the Impossible

Technology is changing our relationship with authority: who we trust, who we listen to, and how we plan for our future. This is driven by an explosion of information that is providing us with the opportunity to understand our world in ways not previously possible. With all the information that is generated about us, should we not benefit from the insights available? What are the opportunities that advanced analytics enables, and what role does narrative play in making it all possible? Can we have our cake and eat it too? Let’s democratize artificial intelligence, upgrade our society, and use the tools we have to make the future we desire.
