Big Data Still Requires Humans To Make Meaningful Connections

Big Data Still Requires Humans To Make Meaningful Connections | Big Data Analysis in the Clouds | Scoop.it

Big data is a big deal, make no mistake about it, but it’s probably not as big a deal as it’s going to be eventually when we really figure out how to make good use of it.

Pierre Levy's insight:

The Yahoo-owned photo-based social network has more than six billion photos and if you’ve ever tried to search for photos from a particular event or occasion, you might come up with some random stuff on there. People are prone to tagging all of their photos the same thing regardless of whether the tag is suitable for that photo or not. And since the hashtag (first created by Chris Messina) is growing in popularity, Flickr pretty much felt it was the right time for it to officially support it.
