During the O.P.A. talk show Big Data on December 17, 2020 Barbara Wagensveld and Marjolein Pijnappels of Studio Lakmoes discussed the value of data, based on the data we have about the current corona pandemic.

Because what does data actually mean? And how can we assign meaning to data? Is data valuable without a good story?
