In this lively ground-breaking new book, economist Ian Ayres shows how the best and brightest organisations are analysing massive databases at lightning speed to provide greater insight into human behaviour. Ayres exposes the world of data-miners - introducing the people and the techniques, so as to illuminate the hidden patterns all around us.
