Aspen Lecture: Sensing the Whole – Big Data, Big Indicators and the Future of Planetary Health
We live in an interconnected world of volatility and disruption. Systems are linked in a web of dizzying and only partially visible complexity, and change in any one domain has a swift impact on many others. Join Andrew Zolli in a walking tour of emerging tools – such as next-generation satellite imagery, social media, and advanced analytics – that allow us to make sense of this complexity and render the underlying relationships between people and the planet more visible, accessible, and actionable. Learn how the move from “Big Data” to “Big Indicators” enables new approaches to planetary stewardship, planetary health, and social wellbeing.
