Seth Stephens-Davidowitz “Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who You Really Are”

Tuesday, February 13, 2018 - 19:30 to 21:00
Seth Stephens-Davidowitz “Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who You Really Are”
In his groundbreaking work, Harvard-trained economist, former Google data scientist and New York Times writer Seth Stephens-Davidowitz argues that much of what we thought about people has been dead wrong. The reason? People lie, to friends, lovers, doctors, surveys – and themselves. For his book Everybody Lies, Stephens-Davidowitz analyzed the traces of information that billions of people leave on Google, social media, dating and even pornography sites, using the digital goldmine to learn what people really think, what they really want and what they really do. Whether his findings make you laugh, shock you or disturb you, they will make you think. “Time and again my preconceptions about my country and my species were turned upside-down... Endlessly fascinating.” – Steven Pinker, The Better Angels of Our Nature Books will be available for purchase and signing
