Dr. DJ Patil (not actually a DJ) is the data scientist in residence at Greylock Partners, the renowned Silicon Valley venture capital firm, and in a talk at LeWeb London, he unleashes a mighty nerdgasm all about the power of big data.

He tells the audience “the demand for data scientists is at a record high” and that “data is the new black.”
