The age of big data

"Every day we produce more data than the human race did from the dawn of civilisation until the year 2000. Twitter, search engines, scientific experiments, stock markets - these colossal databases can be mined for valuable, sometimes mind-blowing, insights using the most sophisticated algorithms ever created. This film finds out how scientists are using technology and innovation to search data. From the police department who are using an algorithm to predict where crime will strike next, to a mobile phone app that knows that you are unwell before you do, to the man whose £3 billion hedge fund uses cosmologists, code breakers and particle physicists to inform decisions, Horizon unlocks the fascinating world of big data."
