Big Data is Not About ‘Big’ Data

Big Data is Not About ‘Big’ Data | Get ready to publish | Scoop.it

Only 50% of the term Big Data is correct – it’s about data but it’s not primarily about ‘big’. Size or volume of data isn’t the ‘big’ issue. For that matter it’s not primarily about variety either. While both of those factors play important roles, they are only important because of their impact on velocity.

How Twitter Gets In The Way Of Knowledge

Twitter as a research database

luiy's curator insight, January 7, 2013 5:12 PM

TREC's tools for downloading tweets also have to allow for Twitter's strict rate-limiting. TREC attendees trying to download their dataset of 16 million tweets are subject to a maximum of 180 API calls every 15 minutes. Under those limits, it would take more than two weeks to get all 16 million tweets. Researchers trying to gather their own datasets would use Twitter's streaming APIs, which returns a real-time feed of tweets posted to Twitter, but the publicly-available API for that is limited to only a small fraction of total tweets to the service, around 1 percent. There is an API that allows all tweets to the service to be collected, the "firehose," but Twitter strongly limits access to it and charges a fee that is well outside the budget of most academic research.Gnip, Twitter's resellers for firehose access, charges $0.10 per thousand tweets. It would cost TREC, whose participants have no funding at all, $16,000 to get their 16 million tweets that way.

Patrizia Bertini's curator insight, January 8, 2013 3:31 AM

With millions of tweets transmitted every day, Twitter has become an important historical and cultural record and an immensely useful resource for researchers of politics, history, literature, language, and anything else you can imagine.

Elektromobilität: Elektroautos sind nicht klimafreundlicher als Benziner - Golem.de | Get ready to publish | Scoop.it

Autos mit Verbrennungsmotoren bieten mehr Potenzial zum Einsparen von Kohlendioxid-Emissionen als Elektroautos, hat das Freiburger Ökoinstitut ausgerechnet: Durch verbesserte Benzinmotoren könnte der Ausstoß bis 2030 um 25 Prozent gesenkt werden. Elektroautos gelten gemeinhin als umweltfreundlich. Falsch, sagt das in Freiburg ansässige Ökoinstitut. Das Institut warnt davor, dass die Elektromobilität das Klima sogar mehr belastet. Viel mehr Emissionen ließen sich mit effizienteren Verbrennungsmotoren einsparen.

Defining “Big Data” | Ideas Lab | Get ready to publish | Scoop.it

Big Data, a recently launched journal, explains how we can define and make sense of "big data."

The term “big data” has emerged as a popular way to describe the increasing volume of information available about companies, consumers and other subjects. But how can we define and make sense of big data?

According to IBM, big data spans four dimensions: volume, velocity, variety and veracity. “Big data is more than simply a matter of size; it is an opportunity to find insights in new and emerging types of data and content, to make your business more agile, and to answer questions that were previously considered beyond your reach,”
