Find the Face of Big Data which is unknown…!!

We are increasingly used to the idea that Big Data will get ever better at measuring our behaviour. As more of our world becomes ‘datafied’ then we are all familiar with the argument that we can capture ever more intimate details of our lives digitally.
Of course there is a growing realism about the challenges that Big Data faces. The recently reported failure of Google to accurately predict Flu Trends may prove to be a turning point in the popular perceptions of Big Data as the primary means to measure our lives. Likewise there are increasingly questions about the not so minor matter of representativeness of much Big Data. The idea that we can easily replace carefully designed sample with an ‘N=All’ approach is starting to look a little naive.
But in market research we have been feeling pretty secure that even if Big Data can capture what we

Apple has applied for a patent (via AppleInsider) that would introduce mechanical shutters to mobile devices that would slide shut when they detect a potential fall or impact, protecting sensitive weak points like speakers and microphones. These areas are currently kept safe using wire mesh and extremely small openings, but a shutter system would make it possible to build devices with bigger and larger audio ports that could enhance the quality of sound both coming out of and going into the device.
The system describes using sensors that can detect higher pressure levels to activate the shutter, too, using differences in incoming sound levels to figure out external air pressure levels and respond accordingly. It could also detect acceleration from onboard motion sensors. This could then help the shutters slide overtop of the speaker and microphone components when you drop your phone, for instance, or when you’re using it…

Going international isn’t easy. Despite the global interconnectivity of the Web, different markets around the world call for wildly different approaches based on culture, language, and access to technology.
Yet somehow, without making any kind of formal international push, 70 percent of the 24 million people who use the New York-based educational platform Codecademy live outside the US.
“It happened organically,” Codecademy CEO and co-founder Zach Sims tells me. “Just by the nature of what we’re doing and that it’s a global issue.”
Now, for the first time, Codecademy is aggressively capitalizing on that international growth, partnering with organizations in the United Kingdom, France, Brazil, Argentina, and Estonia to strengthen its international hold. Probably the biggest of these initiatives is in the United Kingdom, where Codecademy will open its first international office.
Why the UK? For starters, its government’s commitment to coding education is one of the strongest in the world. This September, it will become…
