Hardware hacking for data scientists

"Sensors are the future of distributed data. General-purpose computing is dissipating and becoming increasingly embedded into our lives (four words: the Internet of Things). We will soon begin to move in a sea of data, our movements monitored and our environments measured and adjusted to our preferences, without need for direct intervention.

What will this look like? How can we create and shape it? How can we introduce the relevant hardware to people who already possess data analytics skills?

One answer is: the O'Reilly Data Sensing Lab."
