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.”

Forsooth, we’ve heard the same from stats nerds in similar positions all around Startuplandia, and we think he has some interesting points to share.

VentureBeat’s VB Insight team is studying marketing and personalization... Chime in here, and we’ll share the results.
