Familiar. Collaborative. Managed.
We’ve all heard about “Big Data” by now but what does it really mean? Big Data is the term used to describe the process of applying serious computing power and the latest in machine learning and artificial intelligence, to massive and often highly complex sets of information.
In a recent example, the Microsoft Data Explorer team used food establishment inspection data to create a wonderful example of making “Big Data” easy to surf. For those of you in the Seattle area, this is an interesting application to use before picking a Father’s Day restaurant. Another more serious example is discussed by the same team and shows an interesting crime rate application that would benefit business owners and potential home buyers.
To help you better understand the impact of big data, Microsoft has recorded an exclusive webcast briefing, "Tools to Turn Emergencies into Knowledge,” produced in association with CIO Magazine that you can view now.
