Roberto V. Zicari, professor of Database and Information Systems at the Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany, a leading database expert, and the Editor of ODBMS.ORG portal for Big Data and New Data Management Technologies, recently gave a talk at Stanford

Big Data: A Data-Driven Society?

Here are the presentation slides (PDF).

Abstract:
I review how Big Data is enabling a data-driven economy, look at what to do with Big Data, and look at the consequences of a society being reshaped by "systematically building on data analytics". Then, I outline some of the Big Data research challenges in three areas: Data, Processes, and Management. I will conclude making a case for Big Data for Social Good - Big Data can be leveraged to better serve the people who generate the data, and ultimately the society in which we live.
