Why Big Data And Machine Learning Are Important In Our Society

The singularity is near, or maybe we're already in it. Whatever the case is, machine learning and big data will have a tremendous influence on our society. The machine minds are coming online, and you had better learn to adapt if you want to succeed. But what are big data and machine learning? Keep reading this Forbes article to find out. Computers have certain capacities. They have a memory to store information. They have computational power, with some machines performing more "flops" per second than others. What happens when these machines face such a large amount of data that traditional techniques of analysis start to fail? That's the world of big data, and it's a world we're living in now. Machine learning is a way for humans to solve problems without actually knowing how to solve them or why a particular approach works. Machines can try out every possible choice and do it very fast. If there are a million options but only one of them is correct, computers can simulate all million events and systematically determine the correct outcome.
