In Pictures: The human face of Big Data

Is a picture is worth a thousand gigabytes? Check out The Human Face of Big Data, a geek-out-worthy coffee-table book

“The Human Face of Big Data” is a book that aims to give readers, through photography and short articles, a glimpse of how powerful new data processing capabilities are changing people’s lives.

Author Rick Smolan is a photographer who gained fame for his “Day in the Life” series, which included an edition focused on the Internet in 1996, “24 Hours in Cyberspace.”

The book is accompanied by an iPad app that debuts on Dec. 4 – the same day that Smolan is sending a copy of the book to 10,000 people whom he considers the world’s most influential.

He’s hoping to start a “global conversation about the tools and technologies” that he and others think will have an even greater impact than the Internet.
