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.

Two issues with big data in M&E: (1) ethical data use, and (2) monitoring without having to burden someone with more data collection (i.e., using available data).

BIG DATA - Muita Informação associada a uma enorme capacidade de processamento. Eis o mapa do futuro: Ricos de informação de um lado (em verde esperança) ; Pobres de informação do outro (em cinza cocô e vermelho) e no meio,  os emergentes (em amarelo peido ) ...

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.

"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."
