Life As We Know It Would Be Impossible Without Big Data
Excerpt: You could do all of these things before our current era of big data. Booking flights, checking weather in distant locations, making phone calls, using a credit card, even selling stock were all tasks that were possible. But they required you to interact with travel agents and brokers, to research international newspaper weather sections and chat with telephone operators to help you make long-distant calls. No one, except a proud Luddite, would want to return to such times.
