Publisher:Bloomsbury Sigma Pages: 304 Price: 499 Small Data: The Tiny Clues which Uncover Huge Trends Author:Martin Lindstrom Publisher:Hachette India Pages:245 Price: 399 The short answer to the question posed on the cover of comedian and math proselytiser Timandra Harkness’ book is: of course size doesn’t matter It never matters except in the King Kong and Godzilla movies In all other things it’s the approach which matters Big Data approaches are defined by vastly distributed and parallelised storage and processing strategies The size of the data set is secondary but things really begin to buzz when volumes are overclocked Harkness who has a delightfully light touch points out that the volume of data out there – which she visualises as terabyte hard disks packed in suitcases on an airport baggage trolley — is growing so fast that figures are out of date by the time they are published Anything which is logically connected to anything else is generating data and the more cash-sparse an economy is the richer these connections are If a travel card is recharged by an electronic wallet connected to a bank account and a mobile number (which constantly reports call and location data) enough data is generate to profile the owner The curve is going to get steeper as the Internet of Things kicks in Internet-connected cars refrigerators baggage tags shipping pallets and the like are going to generate data like foam and algorithms are being written to mine it Herein lies the main operational difference between traditional statistical methods and big data approaches: the latter depend completely on artificial intelligence which learns as it goes along You first instruct it in the rudiments of pattern recognition and as it improves itself it should theoretically reach a point where it plows through the data sea seeking patterns which you did not expect to find but would be interested in Interestingly the human intelligence of branding guru Martin Lindstrom seeks out rather similar patterns Since they are culled from rather small sample sets his conclusions may be treated as “anecdotal” or as “insight” depending on their utility In the first category is his extraordinary observation that suited and booted business travellers in airports tends to have their boarding cards facing downwards in their pockets Because they want to conceal the fact that they are flying economy This has excellent entertainment value but no utility That honour goes to Lindstrom’s observation that apparently turned around Lego which was losing ground to the instant gratification offered by digital gaming He asked an 11-year-old Lego fan what his most prized possession was It turned out to be a pair of old sneakers scuffed at precisely the right angle to announce to the world that their owner was a champion skateboarder From gratification Lego turned its focus to visible proof of achievement like the expensive models of the Millennium Falcon that even grown-ups play with Insightfully Lindstrom distrusts Big Data Because one of these days AI will replace human gurus Pattern recognition is much more reliable than insight It is an innate human skill which machines are now learning Harkness alludes to the pathbreaking work of the British epidemiologist John Snow who used statistical techniques to trace the 1854 cholera outbreak in London to a single handpump in Soho Today AIs crunch Google searches for medical advice from which they map wavefronts of approaching epidemics giving health services strategic depth Big Data is already being used by corporates and governments and will influence our world in ways yet unimaginable If it is kind room for human insight will remain For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App

mother and wife of Kulbhushan Jadhav on death row in Pakistan over alleged espionage Swamy a Rajya Sabha member said "serious homework" for the war should begin "right now" File image of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy PTI "Whatever treatment was given to the mother and wife of Kulbhushan (Jadhav) is akin to Draupadi’s vastraharan that resulted in Mahabharat" "It’s very unfortunate and we are hurt.and now time has come when we should wage war against Pakistan to tear it apart into four pieces" he told reporters on the sidelines of an event in Mumbai The mangalsutra bangles and bindi of Jadhav’s wife and mother were reportedly removed before the tightly-controlled interaction he had with them according to an external affairs ministry statement in New Delhi "I don’t say that we should do this (declare war) immediately but we should start doing serious homework for this right now" Swamy said adding "it’s my personal opinion and it often becomes party’s opinion also" Swamy said splintering Pakistan was the only solution to India’s running feud with its neighbour When asked if Tuesday’s surgical strike by the Indian Army in which three Pakistani soldiers were killed was a befitting reply to them he said "It’s okay but for a permanent solution Pakistan needs to be split" Calling Pakistan an "envious and vengeful" country he ruled out the possibility of other countries joining the conflict in the event of an India-Pakistan war He also sought an immediate end to the External Affairs Ministry issuing medical visas to Pakistani nationals External Affairs Minister

one time Udayan Raje had joined BJP and was even made a minister so BJP cannot him disown him now If the government has courage it should challenge Udayan Raje’s statements" the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ It said Bhosale has time and again voiced the concerns of people "After PM Narendra Modi’s decision people in rural areas have suffered a lot Yet no leader from rural areas is ready to speak against it These leaders have their hands full with old notes and they are now in a piquant situation as they cannot remove that money nor can they keep it as it is" the

government shoot these people" the Sena asked By: Express News Service | Published: October 8 2014 4:30 am Related News Followingthe prime minister’s “Make in India” speech in which he set a target of taking India’s rank in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business report from 134 to the top 50 the Centre has unveiled a two-pronged strategy to mitigate the hassles faced by businesses While the states are being exhorted to make the investment climate less hostile another plan is underway to cut inter-departmental squabbling on clearances at the Centre This is of course most welcome especially as the government appears to be borrowing from the experience of states and benchmarking “best practices” for regulatory processes But for an administration desperately trying to attract business its policies in the telecom and oil sectors are bewildering In the telecom sector for instance there has been an inexplicable delay in the department of telecommunications granting companies the spectrum that they won in the February auctions And given that the 20-year-old licences for spectrum in the 900 Mhz band will be up for renewal next month in circles like Delhi Kolkata and Mumbai the delay in allocation could result in choked networks disruptions and call drops That’s not all By challenging the TDSAT verdict allowing intra-circle roaming in the 2100 Mhz band in the Supreme Court — indeed even the Q&As attached to the government bid documents allowed this — the Centre is further vitiating the environment With the mergers and acquisitions policy still unclear expiry and non-renewal of 900 Mhz licences across circles imminent and the government unable to free up and offer more spectrum for auction the overall scenario is dismal Indeed the upcoming auctions early next year will likely witness some fierce bidding because getting more spectrum is now a matter of survival for telcos A similar stasis pervades the oil sector where a decision on gas prices is still awaited As are resolutions to year-old export proposals and lease extensions Oil and telecom are two sectors in which businesses are waiting to pump in capital The stakes are high In fact it has been estimated that

Advanis resignation proved to be a tame affair The party did not show signs of wide cracks; there was not much explicit support to Advani from inside the party andabove allthe resignation letter did not even try to articulate any larger point that the party rank and file or top leadership could have related to The Advani episode thus proved to be neither dissent on principle nor protest over strategy But irrespective of thatNarendra Modis BJP would still face the four challenges of organisationimagecoalitionability and electoral viability While detractors of Modi would surely harp on his record during the 2002 violence against Muslimsthe party would project him as the icon of development and a new vision This would raise questions about whether the party has not performed as well in the two relatively less developed states of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh where it has been ruling for the last two terms Projecting Modi would only lead to underplaying the performance of the governments in those two states How the party organisations in those two states and the chief ministers themselves would respond to thiswill be of immense organisational importance for the party Given his ambition to become prime minister (should the BJP form the government)Modi would ensure his loyal supporters as candidates and as campaign managers in those two states as also Rajasthan This would unsettle the existing equations in those states where the BJP otherwise stands a fair chance of performing well in the coming Lok Sabha election The way Advani has been silenced by the Sangh will always remain a pointer to anyone wanting to compete with Modi or share credit with him These matters will surely test the organisational resilience of the BJP The other challenge would be in the realm of the partys image and USP There is no doubt thatin the coming monthsopinion polls would show that Modis image and popularity are soaring and that would mislead the Modi bandwagon to believe that he is the only saviour and guarantor of the partys success in the coming elections But therein lies the dilemma for the new BJP Does it go back to the Hindutva agenda whole hog If it does thatit becomes easy to alienate the BJP on the secular-communal axis But if the BJP under Modi does not look like Modis BJPthen much of the charm and masochistic appeal of Modi is wasted Modis own image transformation from Lauh purush (iron man) to Vikas purush (development man) remains to be tested outside of Gujarat The BJP will have to keep juggling between these two images of the leader Aware of this dilemmaModi has already indicated his strategy a negative campaign on the plank of a Congress-mukt nation (a nation free of the congress) This has predictable elements (dear to the Sangh Parivar)such as Nehru-Gandhi family-baitingindirect attacks on Sonia Gandhis foreign originsRahul Gandhis inexperience andof coursethe many corruption scandals that the UPA has offered to its opponents as easily available fodder This strategy seeks to escape the difficult choice between the Hindutva image and the Gujarat Shining image But this strategy also implies an interesting move Modis first astute step to resurrect the anti-Congressism that had previously helped the BJP construct the NDA Will the slogan of Congress-mukt India inject new enthusiasm in the NDA For the last five yearsthe NDA has been more or less defunct The challenge for the BJP will be to either revive the NDA or be able to increase its own seat tally dramatically If we assumesafelythat even with Modi the BJP is not likely to reach 200-plus seatsthen it is necessary for the party to retain and strengthen its coalitionability.
