Thanks to Jamie Bisker for a terrific presentation about Big Data – and it’s impact on a variety of business and social issues.
Further, Jamie has made available a paper he has written on the subject – download it to read. This paper has a focus on analytics in the insurance industry but the discussion will be broad-ranging. There are many articles and books appearing on the subject. For some interesting alternative insights about Big Data – consider these recent pieces: one from the New York Times – Sure, Big Data is great. But so is intuition by Steve Lohr. And this from the Washington Post, exploring a possible hidden agenda among all the miracles promised by the new technology: Why big data might be more about automation than insights, by Derrick Harris.
