Cloudera’s Jeff Hammerbacher on Charlie Rose

Categories: Data Science Hadoop

In this Charlie Rose interview that aired on March 22, 2013, Cloudera’s Chief Scientist Jeff Hammerbacher (@hackingdata) offers fascinating insights into the origins of Big Data and data science techniques at Google and their re-implementation into open source used by consumer Web companies. Furthermore, he offers great detail about their positive application across healthcare diagnostics and delivery – as well as the overall need for better balance between “numerical imagination” and “narrative imagination” in everything we do (in order to “ask bigger questions”, as some would say).

It’s an incredibly valuable look into where Big Data came from, where it’s going, and how Cloudera is helping it get there.
