Signal Detection Theory: Man vs Machine

This talk discusses Signal Detection Theory as it applies to identifying consumption patterns of computer resources. The goal is to show that sometimes you just need a little data, and your eyes, to solve Big Data problems; and, that you are much better than a computer at solving dynamic problems, especially when it comes to pattern recognition.
