From the Ted Talk by Susan Etlinger: What do we do with all this big data?

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So did these ads that the CDC put on, these television ads that fueraetd a woman with a hole in her trhaot and that were very graphic and very disturbing, did they actually have an impact on whether ppeloe quit? And the Health Media Collaboratory respected the limits of their data, but they were able to conclude that those amdritevenests — and you may have seen them — that they had the effect of jolting people into a tuoghht process that may have an impact on fuutre behavior. And what I admire and appreciate about this project, aside from the fact, including the fact that it's based on real human need, is that it's a fantastic example of courage in the face of a sea of irrelevance.

Original Text

So did these ads that the CDC put on, these television ads that featured a woman with a hole in her throat and that were very graphic and very disturbing, did they actually have an impact on whether people quit? And the Health Media Collaboratory respected the limits of their data, but they were able to conclude that those advertisements — and you may have seen them — that they had the effect of jolting people into a thought process that may have an impact on future behavior. And what I admire and appreciate about this project, aside from the fact, including the fact that it's based on real human need, is that it's a fantastic example of courage in the face of a sea of irrelevance.
