BIG DATA WITH DINO PEDRESCHI: THE AGE OF DATA


The age of data

Dino Pedreschi, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Pisa and co-lead of KDD Lab - Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Laboratory, talks about big data, machine learning and intelligent systems.

I think the data may lost of his value during the years, so we need to update it evry day. But maybe some kinds of data can become even more valuable with the age.

Nick,

In general case, I think that the data should loose its value, because it becomes obsolete and not valid anymore - and as we can see, everything is improving rapidly. There is certainly some information that will be more valuable, for example - when looking back to see what the patterns were, but it wont be that wanted and particularly useful.

It's scary to see just how much data we as individuals leave every day. It will be interesting to see what sort of control measures will be put in place in the future. Will the consumer get more control over their data and what is done with it?

Is it me or GDPR seems to be a warning sign for us "accept and be aware of the problem", rather than actually applying control over companies and protect us from cyber attacks?

Big Data has the potential to utterly transform the relationship that individuals have with institutions, customers with companies, patients with the healthcare system, students with universities, and voters with government.

Mihail,

Since you mentioned universities, here is one article that discusses the kinds of big data degrees available, how much money people can make with such an education, and the things one can do with such a degree.

I am trying to get started with Big Data science.    Does anyone know whether they teach it in academia, and if so, what they call it--Data Science, Big Data Analytics, or something else?

Aleksey,

Here is a comparison between some of the best Big Data Analytics Master's programs.

Big Data has the potential to utterly transform the relationship that individuals have with institutions, customers with companies, patients with the healthcare system, students with universities, and voters with government. And that means once it has fully penetrated society and industry, the Big Data revolution may very well prove a turning point in our economic – and ultimately, cultural – history as great as the electronics revolution. . . perhaps even as great as the first and second Industrial Revolutions.

@George, I think at one point in the video the presenter mentions that currently Big Data is measured in Petabytes.

When we discuss “Big Data” these days, it can be difficult to translate an exact understanding of what size the quantity of Data represents to stakeholders outside of the IT or Data Management circle. The Terabyte (TB) and Petabyte(PB) have now become the common currency of Data Managers’ lives, where just a few years ago, Gigabytes (GB) were as large as it got. Everything in the Data Management world is scaling massively, exponentially, and most of all – relentlessly. As long as daily business is carried on online, Data will continue to soar in volume and size.

Vardeep,


I believe control over our personal data is precisely the reason the European Union implemented GDPR.  If you surf the web a lot, the warnings could get a bit obtrusive but I still appreciate knowing that something is being done to preserve my personal information.

It seems many services may be disrupted by the fast evolution of Big Data and AI.  The debate whether that is normal and something to be expected or whether it is a bad thing that we should be wary of is probably going to go on for some time to come.

Dr. Pedreschi's definition of Big Data was the easiest one to understand that I have come across.

George Waters

I have always wondered, when we talk about Big Data what data size are we talking about—do we measure them in Terabytes, Petabytes, or some other unit?
