Alex “Sandy” Pentland, the world’s leading data scientist, has developed the next frontier in Big Data through his groundbreaking experiments and discoveries. Social physics, a new scientific field, predicts the social changes to structures of companies, governments, communities and much more. Now through his exclusive speaking engagements with American Program Bureau, he shares how social physics influences the way human social networks spread ideas, transform those ideas into behaviors and why it will change the way we think about how we learn and interact at every level of society. Pentland’s profound knowledge of this innovative sociological concept provides audiences with the necessary tools to solve some of society’s most difficult issues.
In his newest book, Social Physics: How Good Ideas Spread—The Lessons from a New Science, Pentland illustrates how and why social physics is the most important revolution in the study of social behavior today. This entirely new perspective on life helps institutions focus on converting information flows within social networks into real-world ventures. Pentland’s revolutionary work provides businesses with better management tools through insights into their social networks and the influencers within them to improve interactions with customers.
Pentland is among the most-cited computational scientists in the world due to his firm grasp on how we can all take full advantage of a group’s collective intelligence to further productivity. Through passionate speeches, audiences will be guided through disruptive change in a way that maximizes the good, have the opportunity to learn about the new science of idea flow and understand the mysteries of social influence.
