HIDE

More and more every nanosecond, the world we inhabit is explained by, controlled by, and made up of data. Where you go, what you read, the weather, your food, your body -- all data. And we are acquiring the power to gather, understand, and use that data in never-before-seen ways.

All this week on PopSci.com, we observe Data Week, a multifaceted look at how big data is changing the world.
