Jordan Morrow: The Importance of Data Literacy | Big Data Talks #7
Welcome to our next episode of Big Data Talks, in which we have conversations with Industry Experts about the way in which data, machine learning and artificial intelligence are changing the way we live. My name is Jan-Willem Middelburg, and I will be your host today. I am the author of the Enterprise Big Data Framework, which is hosting this series of Big Data Talks. You can always watch back the recording of this discussion on YouTube, the Big Data Framework Website, and the podcasting platform on Apple Podcasts.
Today, I am very happy to announce my next guest, Jordan Morrow. Jordan Morrow is known as the “Godfather of Data Literacy”, having helped pioneer the field by building one of the world’s first data literacy programs and driving thought leadership. Jordan is the Vice President and Head of Data and Analytics at BrainStorm Inc., and a global trailblazer in the world of data literacy, building the world’s first full scale data literacy program. He served as the Chair of the Advisory Board for The Data Literacy Project, has spoken at numerous conferences around the world and is an active voice in the data and analytics community. He has also helped companies and organizations around the world, including the United Nations, build and understand data literacy.
When not found within his work of Data, Jordan is happily married with 5 kids. Jordan is also an avid trail runner and loves fitness, entering and racing in multiple ultra-marathons and having fun adventures in the mountains. Jordan loves to read, often reading (or using Audible) to go through multiple books at a time. Welcome to Big Data Talks Jordan.
