Usman mostly covered a community oriented view to Big Data Acquisition which he says is very important if citizens and communities are to fully engage with important issues in the world. Key here is the fact that the community can overcome any deficiencies (errors or heterogeneities) by creating their own specific tools.

Usman Haque has worked a lot with interactive environments over the years, founded a web platform for building internet-connected devices, buildings and environments for storing, sharing and discovering of real time sensor, energy and environmental data, known as Pachube, acquired by LogMeln in 2011. Later on, Usman took part in launching COSM.com platform where he was heading up urban projects that dealt with data, sensors and internet of things.

In the interview Alon drew upon his work on Google Fusion Tables which allows users to upload and store their datasets. A collection of technologies which are not necessarily new but are now beginning to work at scale are having an impact. These include: reconciling entities (saying X and Y are the same thing), resolving schema and ontology differences, extracting high quality data from the web, large ontology based datasets (typically built from wikipedia), crowd sourcing computation. 

Alon Halevy leads the Structured Data research team at Google Research. Prior to that, Alon was a professor of Computer Science at the University of Washington, where he started  UW CSE Database Group in 1998, and worked in the field of data integration and web data.
