Deciphering Big Data to Make Better Decisions

There is so much data out there about all of us – thanks to the “big data revolution.” Every day it’s used to predict our behavior – from consumer habits to the likelihood of committing a crime. But all that data is useless if you don’t know how to interpret it. Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, author of “Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are” (2017), understands that data can play an important role in challenging conventional wisdom and making better decisions. In this episode, New York Times bestselling author and data scientist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz explains how to use data analysis to follow the data – wherever it leads. Later in the show, we talk with the founder of FOMO Bones, a company that makes CBD treats for dogs.
