Learning Solutions Conference & Expo 2014 - March 20, 2014

Douglas Merrill

Co-Founder and CEO of; Google’s Former Chief Information Officer

Everything you think you know about big data is probably false. Technology can mindlessly capture thousands of data points, but without a good understanding of what’s important and what’s simply noise, big data ends up as a barrier, not a road map. Douglas Merrill knows data. He has done research for the US government on large-scale data analysis and visualization. He was the CIO at Google and he’s the founder and CEO of ZestFinance, the big data underwriting firm. This experience allows him to make hard concepts simple to understand. In a lively talk, free of jargon, he shows you how to approach big data, what its implications are for your organization, your learners, and learning … and how to make it work.
