We live in an era of information. Every day, hundreds of thousands of information are passed from one person to another. The question we should ask ourselves is “whether all these information, all the data, makes us feel more comfortable or not”?

Whether you will be more successful with more data? People think that the more data we receive, the better we become. But the truth is the opposite.

Susan Etlinger is an industry analyst with Altimeter Group. She focuses on data strategy, analytics and privacy. Working with global organizations to incorporate strategic data usage, Susan talks about how data has changed our lives.

In her TED talk presentation, Susan explains that as we receive more data, we need to deepen our critical thinking skills. In the end, we can get trapped in counting things, instead of really understanding them. So, how can you improve your data analytics and data understanding? Check how Susan explains it.
