From what I do know about Big Data, this will be one of the most intriguing sessions of the week, sure to be of interest to Big Data techies and non-techies alike.
Big Data's role in protecting us from another recession (fraud detection), petty crime, gang violence and more...international terrorism & domestic events like the Boston Marathon Bombing: Surveillance, Protection, Deterrence & Aftermath of crisis. (Spooky stuff)
Let's make it clear: I am a Lifestyle, Humor & Book Reviews/Literary Rebel writer. My Live Blogging and most-recent reporting experience for Patch Media has been primarily in Education & Civic Issues. I am a non-techie girl, living in a very tech-geeky world, between my husband, the CTO, and our very tech-savvy three children (ages 18, 15 & 12).
I also want to note that the Grady High School award-winning student newspaper, The Southerner, provided excellent coverage on The Grady Southerner Facebook Page as events unfolded yesterday, including accurate information, details and pictures. The student coverage was a great source of reassurance and relief to parents on the outside and informed the community about what was happening on the locked-down campus.
I will be LIVE BLOGGING the APS Grady HS Community Meeting tonight (2/28/2013), beginning at 6:30 p.m. Join me here live tonight or for the re-cap tomorrow in Midtown Patch/Patch Media.
