In the midst of crisis, uncertainty can be rampant, but there are also certainties to consider – how can the world of Big Data, with data & analytics, guide us in confronting this paradox and help an organization be more resilient and antifragile?
Nassim Taleb, author of Antifragile has said, “The fooled-by-data effect is accelerating. There is a nasty phenomenon called “Big Data” in which researchers have brought cherry-picking to an industrial level.”
Quite simply, “cherry-picking” at an “industrial level” causes fragility.
As Taleb has distinguished: “Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better. This property is behind everything that has changed with time.”
Join Juan Nunez and Lisa Cavanagh for an exploratory conversation on Big Data, resilience, and antifragility to go beyond “cherry-picking” and “industrialization” and achieve greater antifragility.
