In this TEDx presentatin, Reuben Vendeventer’s talk is pitched towards students, but it’s useful for business people too. The value in Vendeventer’s talk is his orientation towards data and the information age. He conceptualizes our knowledge of DNA as data points. This kind of reorientation is a solid start for any learner’s relationship with the data behind business intelligence. This is a valuable talk for a broad, global view of how data is transforming business and the rest of society. Vendeventer’s thesis can be summed up by his statement that enough data could have solved the question of which came first, the chicken or the egg. That may be a tad optimistic, but this talk’s still worth a look.
