With a Side of Knowledge is a podcast produced by the Office of the Provost at the University of Notre Dame. It brings listeners informal interviews with fascinating scholars and professionals from both Notre Dame and elsewhere that take place over brunch.

The show’s sixth episode, “On Big Data and Our Technological Future,” was released Thursday, August 9, and features Hendrik Hamann, senior manager and distinguished researcher in the Physical Sciences Department at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. He was on campus to deliver a lecture as part of the Mendoza College of Business’s 10 Years Hence speaker series, which explores issues, ideas, and trends likely to affect business and society over the next decade. 

An IBM Master Inventor, Hamann holds approximately 100 patents and is currently helping to lead IBM’s worldwide activities in Internet of Things research. He and host Ted Fox start with an overview of what terms like “Internet of Things” actually mean and then discuss the technology rapidly transforming our day-to-day lives as well as the processes by which it is created and managed.
