“Big Data” was not yet a household term when EMC sponsored The Human Face of Big Data more than three years ago. To help the general public understand how technology’s ability to gather, store and analyze massive amounts of information will change our lives, EMC underwrote production of the book by Rick Smolan, creator of the wildly popular “Day in the Life” series of photography books. Three years later, talk of Big Data has moved on to Data Lakes that can now bring data, analytics and applications together seamlessly, enabling organizations to run analytics across all of their data, acting on insights and building new capabilities that were unimaginable before.

To see how The Human Face of Data project has evolved, tune in to the hour-long documentary set to air tonight on PBS stations at 10pm ET (check local listings for viewing details).
