While the field of data science is not tied directly to Big Data, advances in one tends to produce advances in the other. Big Data increases our ability to harvest and process data, while data science allows us to dig into it for insights.
IoT data offers answers to a simple question: “Are things changing or staying the same?” There are new data streams generated each day, that make it possible to quantify the formerly unquantifiable. The Internet of Things (IoT) enables us to measure processes and react more quickly to ever-evolving conditions, not
Social networks, in one form or another, have existed since people first began to interact. Indeed, put two or more people together and you have the foundation of a social network. It is therefore no surprise that, in today’s Internet-everywhere world, online social networks have become entirely ubiquitous. Within this
This is Part 2 of Data Strategy series discussing “How To” following Part 1 of Data Strategy that dealt with “5 ‘W’s of Data Strategy”. Strategy is about doing the right things and tactics is about doing things right. Data Strategy is about doing the right things to distill Data
One of the coolest things about being a data scientist is being industry-agnostic. You could dive into gigabytes or even petabytes of data from any industry and derive meaningful interpretations that may catch even the industry insiders by surprise. When the global financial crisis hit the American market in 2008, few
Cognitive Computing: What’s in a Name? Cognitive computing might be one of the many buzzwords that you today hear and see alongside such terms as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Big Data. However, quite opposite to these terms, Cognitive computing, as it seems, does not have a clear
I am sure you’ve come across many 2016 statistics on Data and Analytics as I have. I’d like to use couple of statistics from IDG’s Enterprise 2016 Data & Analytics Research to start this article. As per their research, 78% of enterprises agree that data strategy, collection & analysis of big
You may not realize it, but your car probably already has some self-driving technologies—even basic ones. For example, many of the newest cars have lane assist or park assist, which can help you avoid unintended lane violations or better ease into parking spots. But those car assistance technologies depend on
Using tabs or spaces when writing a new line of code has been one of the fiercest battles ever fought among coders. Because we don’t live in a perfect world where everybody indents and aligns according to the same standards, the debate is ultimately reduced to how source-code is displayed in editing software.
