What should we care about Big Data? Big data is changing the way we live, work, and play. New technologies, skills, ways of thinking, and processes will be needed to gather, share and analyze the staggering amounts of data available as everything from electric meters to cars, smart phones to cats, dogs and cattle become digitally connected in today's always on, always connected world.
Public and private sector organizations are already investing billions in big data technologies, education, and research. While there is general agreement that the big data paradigm is here to stay, we are still in the early stages of understanding its impact, potential, and pitfalls.
