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.
The Golden State Warriors are on top of the NBA after winning their second championship in three years. They have been in the finals for three consecutive years, set the regular season wins record at 72 wins in the 2015-16 season, and came one game away from going undefeated through

Anyone who has ever had their bag go AWOL while travelling knows that sinking feeling that comes with being told that your luggage is lost. Sadly, lost luggage is one of the perils of modern travel, and one that seems to happen on an all-too-often basis. Fortunately, just as technology
Deep learning is a subfield of machine learning and it comprises several approaches to tackling the single most important goal of AI research: allowing computers to model our world well enough to exhibit something like what we humans call intelligence. On a basic conceptual level, deep learning approaches share a
Whilst most businesses don’t earn revenue by processing data, they do spend a large amount of their hard earned revenue in manually processing data, validating it and ultimately performing manual tasks that don’t scale. But at what point does this manual involvement become a burden of cost upon your business?
Big data sets are so complex and large that common data processing tools and technologies cannot cope with them. The process of inspection of such data and uncovering patterns is called big data analytics. The basic question which arises in our mind is, “In what way is the drug discovery
