The key difference between the Numerati [people who are developing and implementing methods and technologies to capture and analyze our everyday activities] and the rest of us lies in the toolbox they carry. It contains sets of mathematical formulas and drawers full of algorithms that mankind has been building for thousands of years. Using this know-how, they attempt to put complex reality into numbers so that theories can be tested and refined.
