The world after Big Data: What the digital revolution means for us

The world after Big Data: What the digital revolution means for us | Big Data, Cloud and Social everything | Scoop.it

Never before were politicians, business leaders, and scientists more urgently needed to master the challenges ahead of us. We are in the middle of a third industrial revolution. While we see the symptoms, such as the financial and economic crisis, cybercrime and cyberwar, we haven't understood the implications well. But at the end of this socio-economic transformation, we will live in a digital society. This comes with breath-taking opportunities and challenges, as they occur only every 100 years.

Prior to a product like DataTorrent, companies would be looking back at what happened, rather than processing it in real time as it happens, and that’s a big change. ....

"There are four principal reasons for the relative lack of structured big data for social problems: Data are buried in administrative systems, data governance standards are lacking, data are often unreliable, and data can cause unintended consequences."

 

"Big data has enormous potential to inform decision-making to help solve the world’s toughest social problems. But for this to happen, issues relating to data collection, organization, and analysis must first be resolved."
