Puzzling over big data.  Can a presentation about analytics, big data and algorithms be funny.. and perfectly understandable to those of us who know nothing about higher math? Absolutely! Inspired by the way people put puzzles together, Jeff Jonas, chief scientists, entity analytics at IBM, challenges teenagers to a puzzle project. Unbeknownst to them, some pieces are duplicates while others are missing (just like the data you need in real life). Jonas shows how he studies human approaches to problem solving to devise better ways to mine big data. He also explains why you get better information when you co-mingle social network data with other data, rather than analyze it separately. See also Gigaom
