“Bigger is better” has long been an ‘unconscious [gender] bias’. But I complemented Small is Beautiful with Micro is Powerful and Nano is Wonderful, ever since I saw what my re-visualisation of images could reveal.
Thanks to joining techUK, I could re-visit Big Data in the context of knowledge and understanding, just as Daniel Perklin of M.R.S. Company in Toronto, as he quotes Goethe and Faust in his Big Data Primer where his delightful infographic links to.
Big data has been made topical mainly by ‘big business’ and tends to refer to unstructured data, i.e. text-heavy, with a view to analysing consumer data, promising managers to make better business decisions.
Structured data, however, tends to be related to finance and science, also using sensors and other electronic devices to measure events over time and record numerical values, besides capturing sound and image files via the Internet of Things.
My proprietary algorithms cut across the business / science divide to unify data analytics. The resulting software lenses through which to view big business data and very big science data will not only offer new educational and social opportunities, but also jobs and specialised data expertise, i.e. understanding and knowledge!
In particular, boys who are inclined to teach themselves coding, could progress to writing apps for ‘Smart Knowledge Portals’, while girls can look at data to advance from studying to becoming employed in the expertise they develop from their own curiosity.
Government is committed to an Open Data Strategy.
- because 3dM Data Profiles offer a new kind of high level ‘data derivative’ in a new view;
- because my 3dM Diagrams unclutter complex data;
- an image is worth 1,000 words; 3dM Images is then worth many more words AND metrics!
The big idea behind big data is turning
- data into information
- information into knowledge
- and knowledge into understanding and wisdom!
