Big Data and Globalizing Genius In an interview with the Economist's Matthew Bishop, Igor Tulchinsky explains how big data and technological change make education more important than ever.

Igor Tulchinsky discusses philanthrocapitalism with longtime Economist writer and editor Matthew Bishop at the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize Forum. As founder of WorldQuant University, Tulchinsky believes that education has been slow to evolve and argues that it is only a matter of time before economic forces push education to adapt and catch up to today’s technologically driven world.

Tulchinsky explains how big data will "change everything in a positive way," as the democratization of data will enable people to start new ventures that were never possible, citing new technologies such as 3D printing and DNA sequencing. In this world, education becomes more valuable than ever, rewarding those with the skills to access information and use it wisely.
