The Dallas iPhone Developers/Entrepreneurs Meet-up group gathered at [x]cubeLABS, Dallas office to discuss- Social + Mobile + Big Data. Led by [x]cube LABS, Mr. V. Haricharan and Mr. Billy Zinser, the night was described as “informative” on a “significant topic” by those who attended.
As we try to make our way through the brave new world of Big Data, Haricharan outlined ways that data already affects our lives, how integration with social and mobile can sometimes lead to the wrong conclusion by not taking into consideration the motivation behind the data, and how it could potentially work. How can the unique capabilities of mobile + social help refine Big Data and provide a course-correction for information gone awry? As new applications are developed, what are the implications both for privacy and for providing new services?
While the questions themselves are thought-provoking, it is their practical application in the real world, right now, that motivates the discussion. Take a moment to click through the Keynote to start the wheels turning.
