Big Data vs. Bad Data

Big Data vs. Bad Data | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it
 This is the elephant in the Big Data room….How much “Bad Data” is out there?Wait a minute, I hear you say, do you mean to say that not all of this data is accurate? What is the point of salivating over terabytes of Big Data if we don’t understand which bits are inaccurate, duplicated, incorrect or incomplete?That is the right question to be asking.The consequences of cyber attacks are well documented, but actually, in a world that is increasingly reliant on our data, the costs of Bad Data could be even higher.

Why Big Data didn’t help Tesco

Why Big Data didn’t help Tesco | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it
In the last six months of so there has been much commentary about Tesco’s difficulties, including a number of posts by me. One of the questions I have been asked many times since is “Why didn’t ClubCard (Tesco’s loyalty card scheme) data warn them? Why didn’t big data help? Surely a retailer as sophisticated as Tesco would be able to read its big data to notice that there are some worrying trends that need addressing? The fact that apparently vast quantities of big data were not able to keep Tesco from a truly alarming fall from grace, contains lessons for us all

Solving Problems With Collective Intelligence – Towards an Internet of Thinkers? | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it
How can technology that we are able to build with today’s tools help us to solve the big problems of individuals, organizations, and the world at large? More specifically: How can we use the internet in the best way to improve our collective problem-solving capabilities? Questions like these don’t seem to be asked very often, perhaps because people usually focus on specific problems, rather than general problem-solving in its own right.

On a hot sweltering day in Lincoln, Nebraska in July of 1990 I delivered my first predictive model.Working on a contract basis for Metromail (acquired by Experian), I analyzed the performance of about half dozen recent mailings for a non-profit to predict the characteristics of best donors.I used demographics like age, income, home value, history of donations and created a linear regression model. The top decile (we group data into equal ten percent, each is called a decile) was yielding a theoretical 7% response rate, and the bottom about 0.5%. Everything looked good, and I presented the res
