Data Is the New Currency – StartupTalk with Elena Poughia

ArtifiEvery day, Internet users create tons of new data. Actually, there are 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created each day at our current pace, but that pace is only accelerating with the growth of the Internet of Things. Last year Forbes impressively listed how much data is produced on the Internet every minute.

  • Google processes 40,000 searches every second
  • Users watch 4,146,600 YouTube videos every minute
  • 456,000 tweets are sent on Twitter
  • Instagram users post 46,740 photos
  • There are 990,000 Tinder swipes
  • Spotify adds 13 new songs

Therefore, the terms that data is now the new oil or that data is the new currency of the 21st century quickly became established.

For the pilot episode of our new Startup Talk format, we invited an expert in this field: Elena Poughia, Managing Director at Dataconomy and founder of Data Natives.

Data Natives is Europe’s largest event platform for the data-driven generation. Data Natives was founded in 2015 to bring together communities from around the world who were excited by the boom in data science, machine learning, and all data-infused tech.

We talk to Elena about the upcoming Data Natives conference, which will take place on November 26th and 26th in Berlin, talk about the connection between art and technology and discuss why diversity is especially important in the field of data science and the development of algorithms.

The fifth edition of Data Natives will welcome over 2,000 attendees and more than 130 speakers. Speakers this year will be thought leaders from IBM, Facebook, SumUp and many more.
