For a long time, the big data movement was seen as a tool for the industry. I felt that the big data movement was way too complex for a few data people to understand. I was wrong!
The big data movement has grown into one of the largest and most interesting data science problems to date. It’s like the Internet of Things. Consumers have grown accustomed to the fact that data can be used to measure their discomfort and their happiness. Nurture theory says that our behaviour is influenced by our environment.
Let’s look at how the big data movement has affected data science, and how it’s affected us.
The big data movement
The big data movement is a massive movement that is sweeping the world. The movement is so big that it seems impossible to describe. I have to start by mentioning the definition of big data. It is a term I use loosely, because it is hard for me to define. We’ll start with the big picture, and then look at how we can understand what the big picture really means.
A big picture is an idea that describes everything that can be seen on a large scale.
It is the idea that there is a complex network of connections that make up our world. Some big data thinking takes a more complex approach.
Let’s start with the big picture, and then we’ll look at how we can understand what the big picture really means.
Why we need big data
Big data is like a wave, but one that has a high velocity
Big data is like a wave that has a high velocity that we can sense and see from afar. It’s fast, it’s not complicated. It is a wave with an exceptionally high velocity.
We can see this for ourselves when we talk about how big data is transforming the consumer world. It is transforming the way we use data.
The consumer world
In the consumer world, we are no longer just consumers, but also producers. We are not just consumers, but also producers. We are creating our own data.
A data scientist’s job is to understand this change. He or she is a producer of data, not just a consumer of data.
The big data movement has brought big changes to the consumer world. Now, the consumer world is not just a few people, but a web of connections, a data-fueled economy, an economic ecosystem.
