The Big Data revolution will be more important than the PC or the Internet. While there were many interesting conversations last week at Strata, two new publications captured my attention:
By combining PCs embedded in our bodies (either temporal tattoos or robotic extensions), ubiquitous computing, big data and a new internet we’ll suddenly will start living on a new augmented universe. The documents bring a new level of clarity around the “big data” buzzword.
In the future… we’ll be able to infinitely analyze any decision, for example:
Our Facebook experience today is unique every single time we visit the site. Imagine a same concept applied to everything around us. If desired, evaluate any decision by their infinite consequences. Play and visualize a “what if” scenario from any previous day in our lives. Every new solution creates new problems, we’ll need to tackle negative aspects as the new reality takes over our present.
With certain limitations, the world will adapt to what we want and to what certain virtual agents favor. We’re not living on the Information era, just on its beginning.
