Companies using data in unique and unexpected ways

In this fifth episode of the data series we look into some examples of companies using big data in unique ways. Yelp is using modern search terms to find the perfect restaurant, businesses are changing their marketing depending on the current weather, Google tracks their employee's patterns to see if they are thinking about quitting, and Joel Selanikio discusses about using big data to transform global health policy.
