The Human Face of Big Data – Who are you?

Who are you? What’s your daily life like? Is it anything like someone else’s in countries like France, Brazil or China?

EMC launches a mobile app today where YOU can play a big part and create a digital mosaic over how people are living all across the globe. Learn things about yourself, find your doppelgänger, and compare yourself and your answers around you as a person, your family, sleep, lovelife, dating and dreams with millions of other people around the world. Map your daily footprint, share what brings you luck, and get a glimpse of what other people would like to experience during their lifetime.

You can be a part of this experiment called “The Human Face of Big Data” starting today and going on until the 2nd of October. After that date the work will continue with journalists, photographers and school children all around the world to see how they best can work with the immense amount of data that is available today in their daily lives.

Download the app that will be released today for both iPhone and Android, and be a part of a global experiment which will give everyone more knowledge on how people spend their daily lives. For the first 50000 downloads, EMC will donate $1 to charity: water which will help in their effort to give clean water to the world, so you’ll do more than just one big favor to the world if you participate in one of the largest global cooperative experiments ever 🙂

You can download the app and read more about the experiment and why we’re doing this over at
