    great session, informative and witty - glad I got a chance to go thanks again Alex Hobbs!

      No worries Edmund your write up makes up for my being unable to attend

    For those interested with the cognitive bias. The blindness and things. There was a book which discussed (amongst many other things) about it. "Thinking, fast and slow" by Daniel Kahnenman.

    It was my first Meetup of Big Data in Media too and I’ve very much enjoyed it. It was a great introduction to the “3V” characteristics of Big Data (Volume: Evolution of dataset size with Duncan, Velocity: Social media with Marie-Alicia , Variety: Speech recognition with Rob). In my opinion, development, ethics and future of Big data have brought great questions such as “How to find new concepts, how to be creative?” problematic that Artificial Intelligence and Evolutionary Computation are currently addressing. Carl’s remarks have particularly drawn my attention with “inattentional blindness” because London universities are currently carrying on studies on emotion recognition using body movement (voice analysis(not word analysis), click rate, mouse movement) which are currently less common on business studies. The timing was very good and well orchestrated. Many thanks to all professionals, sponsors and organizers. I am looking forward to attending the next debate.

    My second visit and thoroughly enjoyed the fast presentations. It's a rare gift to be able to distill everything about who you are as a company into a quick pitch AND to make it engaging and entertaining but they all pulled it off magnificently.

    this was my first meet up and I was humbled to see so much talent in one room. I felt there was a lot to take away and I particularly enjoyed the first 3 presentations. So great to see people who are passionate about what they do, who have taken ideas and not been afraid to run with them, and inspiring that the support network is there to give them every chance of success. Hope some of it rubbed off.

    That was interresting. But it missed showing us which tools are used to analyse these big datas.

      Jean, agree. Something to work on :-) Thanks so much for coming along last night!!

    Using big data to affect assess future conditions can be realised through the infusion of big data and simulation based technology (virtual reality for instance). By using big data to master the rules of nature, we can simply apply probability measures to predict outcomes.

    Am not sure if this is for me! Can anyone help? This is where I am at ... Thinking of coming along to this event but put off by the ‘media’ tag as my area is not media and I am not a media agency. I have a startup that it looking for a scaleable business plan / revenue model and wondering if I might find it within data. My area of business takes place within a market place between international startups and business suppliers (which are currently undefined but may be: accelerators, crowdfunders, VCs, angel investors and business suppliers such as banks, finance consultancies, etc). I am currently trying to find a decent revenue model and the current options I am looking are i) stratum investment deal matching, ii) tools for startups or iii) data generated from receiving startup data around the world.

    I’ve been looking for a data forum where I might start to find individuals that might help me to understand whether or not I might have an opportunity or not. Is this it and why?
