5 things that will remake big data in the next 5 years

5 things that will remake big data in the next 5 years | Big data analytics | Scoop.it
Forget about how much data a disk can store or whether companies will use Hadoop. The questions for big data going forward are how they’ll use Hadoop, how intelligent our systems can actually become and how we’ll keep them in check.
Dr. Vijay Srinivas A's insight:

Very interesting predictions, though not entirely surprising. The bit on deep learning as well as the one on Hadoop YARN is possibly well understood. But a good piece nevertheless.
