Event Details

Humans According to DataChristian Rudder, Co-Founder, OkCupid; Author, Dataclysm

In conversation with Dr. Kirsten Sanford, Host, "This Week In Science"

Our personal data has been used to spy on us, hire and fire us, and sell us stuff we don’t need. OkCupid co-founder, writer of the popular blog OkTrends and Harvard mathematics graduate Christian Rudder has made a name for himself by mining big data to reveal the uncanny and surprising truths behind human behavior. In his new book, Dataclysm, Christian strives to harness the infinite potential of the online to do more than predict the next election cycle or try to market a product. Instead, he aims to use big data to understand human nature, from our politics to our standards of beauty to our racism.


Join us for our inaugural Oakland event at the very cool Impact Hub to confront our essential selves according to Facebook, Google, Twitter and the data collecting engines of the internet age.

Location: Impact Hub Oakland, 2323 Broadway, Oakland
Time: 6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:30 p.m. book signing
