Why Big Data Is Not Truth | NY Times | Thinking Big Data | Scoop.it
Don’t let the rhetoric fool you, a Microsoft researcher says: Big Data is a human tool, which means it is subject to all kinds of miscollection, misapplication and abuse.

 

By Quentin Hardy

 

[The] "promise of certainty has been a hallmark of the technology industry for decades. With Big Data, however, there are even more hazards, some human and some inherent in the technology."

 

"Kate Crawford, a researcher at Microsoft Research, calls the problem “Big Data fundamentalism — the idea with larger data sets, we get closer to objective truth.” Speaking at a conference in Berkeley, Calif., on Thursday, she identified what she calls “six myths of Big Data.”

This looks like a great article. It reminded me of Mark Twain "lies, damn lies, and statistics". We can make a number up for any purpose we want it to serve. Does it?

Crawford does a good job listing *some* aspects of Big Data that can lead to inaccurate conclusions. However, her observations are skewed toward social media an younger generations. It's not the complete picture of what's going on in Big Data.
