TED Talks: The rise of human-computer cooperation – Shyam Sankar

We look back on another great TED talk and this week Data Mining innovator Shyam Sankar shares his insights on the rise of human-computer cooperation.

Sankar explains why solving big problems (like catching terrorists or identifying huge hidden trends) is not a question of finding the right algorithm, but rather the right symbiotic relationship between computation and human creativity.
