Dettagli Seminario:
“Insights from Big Data: Interaction, Design, and Innovation”
In recent years, our ability to process large amounts of data has increased significantly, creating many opportunities for innovation. Having large quantities of data, however, does not necessarily turn into actionable insights that make a difference for users in consumer applications. In this talk I will give a quick overview of some ways in which “big data” can be used in industry, with a particular focus on Human-Centered approaches to innovation. In particular, I will discuss how the combination of qualitative and quantitative methods can be of benefit, giving examples around social media and giving an overview of some of the areas of research
I am currently focusing on at Yahoo!. Within this context, I will outline a blueprint for a framework as it applies to innovation, and discuss specific technical approaches within that framework. I will argue on the importance of taking a human-centered view and highlight what I consider the most fundamental problems in “big data” from that perspective.
