By Steve Kovach/Getty ImagesPosted October 12, 2018 06:21:49In the days before the internet, there was an important step in the evolution of data gathering: a database.
It was the first step in a new age where a person would have the ability to make a living from the data they collected.
But what exactly was a database, and how would it work?
And what data was there, and where was it stored?
In this episode of Data Is Beautiful, we discuss how we might create a database of all NFL players, how to create a football game database for a movie, and what data we might need to build the internet’s next weapon database.
We also talk about the potential for a firearm database, with how it might be created and how it would be distributed.
If you’d like to learn more about data analytics and how they can help companies build better businesses, we’re joined by Adam Hochberg, a senior data scientist at Google and the author of the book Data is Beautiful.
