Technological innovation is exploding, and venture capitalists are continually looking to invest in the next big thing. But while female pioneers are making remarkable strides across a wide range of emerging tech fields—from robotics to virtual reality to drone technology and autonomous flight—they are receiving only a small fraction of the available funding, an inequity that harms both innovator and investor alike. In WTF, tech investor Nisa Amoils profiles a dozen female founders whose remarkable work will make a profound difference in the way we live tomorrow. This eye-opening volume provides a new appreciation of the extraordinary strides being made in disruptive technology by female entrepreneurs who are building a new world. Whether you're a VC searching for new investment opportunities in cutting-edge technology or a young woman who's considering entering the STEM fields, here is your invitation to help shape the future.

A revelatory exploration of the hottest trend in technology and the dramatic impact it will have on the economy, science, and society at large.

Which paint color is most likely to tell you that a used car is in good shape? How can officials identify the most dangerous New York City manholes before they explode? And how did Google searches predict the spread of the H1N1 flu outbreak?

The key to answering these questions, and many more, is big data. “Big data” refers to our burgeoning ability to crunch vast collections of information, analyze it instantly, and draw sometimes profoundly surprising conclusions from it. This emerging science can translate myriad phenomena—from the price of airline tickets to the text of millions of books—into searchable form, and uses our increasing computing power to unearth epiphanies that we never could have seen before. A revolution on par with the Internet or perhaps even the printing press, big data will change the way we think about business, health, politics, education, and innovation in the years to come. It also poses fresh threats, from the inevitable end of privacy as we know it to the prospect of being penalized for things we haven’t even done yet, based on big data’s ability to predict our future behavior.

In this brilliantly clear, often surprising work, two leading experts explain what big data is, how it will change our lives, and what we can do to protect ourselves from its hazards. Big Data is the first big book about the next big thing.
