Big Data is the new Artificial Intelligence

Big Data is the new Artificial Intelligence | Big Data, Cloud and Social everything | Scoop.it

This is the first of a couple columns about a growing trend in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it is likely to be integrated in our culture. Computerworld ran an interesting overview article on the subject yesterday that got me thinking not only about where this technology is going but how it is likely to affect us not just as a people. but as individuals. How is AI likely to affect me? The answer is scary.

L'intelligence artificielle, telle que conçue dans les années 80 à base d'algorithmes et de puissance informatique, a échoué. Aujourd'hui, les ordinateurs se nourrissent de big data et apprennent par eux-mêmes.

Ceux qui prédisent le futur ont tendance à surestimer le changement à court terme et à sous-estimer celui à long terme.

Like a Russian nesting doll, big data also houses legitimate ideas and terms that use big data as a source of information, but differentiate from it based on segmentation. The most popular of these nesting terms, if you will, are smart data, identity data and people data.

"But big data do not solve the problem that has obsessed statisticians and scientists for centuries: the problem of insight, of inferring what is going on, and figuring out how we might intervene to change a system for the better.

 

“We have a new resource here,” says Professor David Hand of Imperial College London. “But nobody wants ‘data’. What they want are the answers.”

 

To use big data to produce such answers will require large strides in statistical methods.

“It’s the wild west right now,” says Patrick Wolfe of UCL."

The specter of big data is haunting the world, but has the data revolution already occurred?

The specter of big data is haunting the world, but has the data revolution already occurred? | Big Data, Cloud and Social everything | Scoop.it
Changes to the supply and demand of data are restructuring privileged hierarchies of knowledge, with amateur hackers and machine-readable technology becoming a central part of its analysis. Traditional experts may be hoping for a gradual evolution, but a parallel revolution led by practitioners in the private sector may already be underway. Prasanna Lal Das argues that partnerships will need to incorporate these new practitioners because for them, the data revolution is already a fact of life. This isn’t the first age of revolution, but this one feels like it might not last 100 years. Our world is transmogrifying in front of our eyes – sometimes more forcefully than others – and the traditionally dry world of data, dominated by dons and ‘experts’, hasn’t been immune to changes either. It might even be the spark for at least some revolutionary fervour, especially since the report of the high level panel of eminent persons on the post-2015 development agenda called for a ‘data revolution’ to ‘strengthen data and statistics for accountability and decision-making purposes’. The official data revolution has however unfolded slowly, sometimes making one wonder if it’s going to be a revolution of the bureaucrats, by the bureaucrats, and for the bureaucrats. Or if it will be a revolution that truly changes how we measure our world, what we measure in it, and who does the measurements.
