The Power of Big Data (DA002)

Data: there’s a lot of it about. And there’s more and more each day. It’s been estimated that the amount of data humans generated from the dawn of time to the year 2003, is now produced in just 2 days. That’s a lot of information. When we talk about data in those amounts, we call it big data. And big data can be powerful.
