The 2013 Strata + Hadoop World Conference is currently going on in New York City. Many of the keynotes will have video streaming live on Tuesday and Wednesday (Oct 29 and 30). Watch and enjoy. If for some reason you cannot watch via the livestream, most of the keynotes are usually placed on Youtube shortly after the conference.
Hans Rosling does an excellent job of showing how “not boring” statistics can be. This is a great informative statistics video. It was originally posted at The Joy of Stats.
Yes, 2013 is the International Year of Statistics. Thus a video was made.
This is a video infographic about pizza delivery in Manhattan. This is another good way to make data tell a story.
This is a very quick and informative video about data science. What is data science? What makes a good data scientist?
DJ Patil does an excellent job answering both those questions.
Here are his answers for what makes a good data scientist:

Jeff Hammerbacher, founder and Chief Scientist of Cloudera, gives a nice talk about data science. He explains what he has done in the past, and what he plans to do in the future.
It is the second video, I have posted recently, emphasizing the importance of data science for more than just advertising. Jeff is getting involved in a Medical School to see how data can help.
Note: The video is about 45 minutes, but it contains some really good information.

Alasdair Allan gives a very entertaining talk. I love what he did with his hotel room lock, or rather what he “absolutely not under any circumstances …” did with his hotel room lock.
Jake Porway of DataKind gives another entertaining talk. This one is more of a Superhero story. Just watch the video, and it will make sense.
