Hi there, I am Andreas Weigend. My expertise is the future of big data, social-mobile technologies, and consumer behavior. I study people and the data they create. In today's increasingly digitized world, consumers share data in unprecedented ways. This Social Data Revolution represents a deep shift in how people make purchasing and lifestyle choices. I advise companies that want to embrace this new reality of social data. Together, we design interactive platforms and real-time systems that empower them and their customers to make better decisions. As Amazon's chief scientist, I helped create the firm's data strategy and customer-centric culture.

I teach at Stanford University and UC Berkeley, direct the Social Data Lab, and speak at corporate events and top conferences around the globe. I received my Ph.D. in Physics from Stanford University after studying in Germany and Cambridge, UK. I live in San Francisco and Shanghai.
