IBM data propaganda – babies and old guys with glasses

Posted to Statistics  |  Nathan Yau

IBM has been spreading the whole "smarter planet" spiel for a while now, but in the past few days, they've revealed the punchline. It's data. The key to a smarter planet is learning how to process and extract information from the 15 petabytes of data we generate per day.

Surprising? No, not at all. Data's the hot thing right now, and that's where the money's at. Learn how to process all of it and you're gold.

Alright, enough chatter. Let's see the babies and old guys with glasses. That one IBMer kind of looks like Santa Claus, no?

It's all a little fluffy and rainbows and lollipops but still fun to watch. Check out the IBMadvertising channel on YouTube for more.
