App DescriptionLEARN. COMPARE. DISCOVER.
The Human Face of Big Data is a globally crowdsourced media project focusing on humanityâ€™s new ability to collect, analyze, triangulate and visualize vast amounts of data in real time.
Download the free mobile app and learn about yourself, how you compare to others and what your phone can tell you about your life. Compare answers about yourself, your family, trust, sleep, sex, dating and dreams, with millions of others around the world. Participate September 25 â€“ October 2nd. Check out HumanFaceofBigData.com on October 2nd to see the final results and explore an extraordinary three-dimensional snapshot of humanity.
Me & Myself. Answer questions and use the sensors in your phone to explore your world. Activate the App to show you a 30,000 foot view of your life: how many people you pass in a day, what time of day you are most active, and what your travel path looks like.
Lucky Me. Discover the rituals and objects that people rely on around the world to bring them luck and check out their stories (and share yours).
Before I Die. Get a glimpse into the one thing people want to experience during their lifetime.
Your Data Doppelganger. Find someone just like you, maybe even on the other side of the world. Check back daily to see how your data doppelganger changes as more users participate. On October 2nd when all the results are in, your ultimate data doppelganger will be revealed!
You have an option to opt in or opt out of GPS Tracking in this app. Should you opt in to GPS Tracking, this app uses GPS coordinates to generate a map of your movement over a 24 hour period only. This visual path is only shown to you. The only information that is displayed to other users is the calculations for your Total Distance, Average Speed, and Most Active Time of day for that 24 hour period.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease your battery life.
