The Big Fuss Over Big Data

Big data the word itself is scary. Big data, however, is the same data which was always used and referred to, but now it is gaining more impetus and importance. It is powerful, and it provides insights as well as value to the business. This big data is powerful, but it is controllable. It provides value and insight to the business.

Big data is defined in various ways. It is a collection of data from various digital and traditional sources from inside as well as outside the company. Using this data, various kinds of analysis, as well as discoveries, are made.

Big data is a mixture of data. The main categorizations are that the data is multi structured and unstructured. The unstructured data sources are not easily interpreted using data models or traditional databases. This consists of social media posts, tweets, etc. and this is gaining a lot of importance and growing.

There is multi-structured data which has different types and formats of the data based on the interactions of people as well as machines. This has visual images as well as text and also transactional information.

When speaking of big data the main factors to be considered are volume or the amount of the data that there is, the velocity or the speed at which this data is generated and flows, the variety or the various kinds of data, the veracity or accuracy of the data and the value of the data or how important it is.

Big data is used in a variety of fashions, to resolve problems, to improve engagement with customers and other such reasons. However, it is important in order not to be left behind by the competition and to emerge as a world leader that this big data should be embraced and used as a very efficient and effective tool.

What Are The Ways Big Data Is Likely To Move?

Big data is the new buzzword all over. This big data refers to huge volumes of data which are used for analytics, decision making and finding out trends. Here are some ways in which big data will probably move and the trends that are taking over in the field of Big data.

Hadoop: This definitely is synonymous with Big Data, but at the same time this is difficult to master. The resultant effect is that in spite or maybe due to Hadoop, some big projects did not do well in the past. However, now this is performing well both on the streaming side as well as the batch processing side and so this is much better and usable as well as clearer to the users.

The Cloud: There are various analytics as well as data intelligence that can be done in the cloud. This provides a solution that is cheaper and also it is used for small businesses who otherwise would not have been able to handle such big data projects. These solutions on the cloud are not only scalable but economical as well so based on the volume these can be scaled up or down with ease.

A data lake can be created for storing data in the native format and using it when you need to, in the way you need to. This acts as a repository for the data, and you can gather a lot of intelligence from this later on.

Predictive Analytics: This is used to determine the future behavior of customers. This is used for not only financial planning, business intelligence but also operational intelligence as well.

The Internet of Anything gets data from various sources such as sensors, geolocation, server logs, mobile services, so on and so forth.

These are just some trends in big data.

Future Tech: Revolutionizing The World We Know

There are various things that will revolutionize the world as we know it. Some of them are:
NASA Drones: NASA drones will work inside space stations and will have cameras which will maneuver their way inside the space station.

Trains will be able to hurtle at the speed of jet airlines. It is said that the passengers will be able to travel at even 760 mph using vacuum tubes which will be propelled by induction motors and compressed air.

The coffee industry generates over 200,000 tons of waste, and therefore, bio-bean is working on a technology where 85% of this waste can be turned into biofuel for heating of buildings as well as for powering of transport.

Forest fires would be detected by drones, and that would direct loud noises. As noise consists of pressure waves, this will be used to disrupt the air which is around the fire and therefore the oxygen supply will be cut off and the fire would die out.

Artificial intelligence is used for solving various complex scenarios which are unable to be solved by humans. The way this works is that the AI works on these abstract theories independently.
Space balloons will likely be used to send tourists to the stratosphere where they can see the curvature of the earth.

Alcohol levels will be monitored by scanning the blood which is on the finger tips which are on the steering wheel and incase the levels are too high, the wheels will be immobilized.

There is permission being awaited by Elon Musk who wants to send 4000 satellites to the Earth’s orbit so that high-speed wireless signals can be beamed to everyone. This is something which Richard Branson also is interested in doing.

Robots will have personalities and the owners can choose one which matches their needs or which is modeled on a fictional character or real person.

Go Green In The Future!

The reliance that we have on fossil fuel will need to be reduced as this is fast depleting and so there are various alternative more efficient sources of fuel being developed.

Solar roof tiles are amazing ways of saving on utility bills and these look like typical roof tiling. They come in different shapes and colors too and are used for generation of electricity. These also have better insulation and last longer and cost lesser than the conventional roofs.

The smartflower provides enough electricity to power a home which is well insulated and well designed. This is not only portable but it protects itself in storms, and it cleans itself. This provides electricity to undeveloped areas.

There are living buildings which work as alternatives to solar panel roofs. This is not only aesthetically pleasing, and the walls, as well as the roof gardens, have a huge amount of benefits. These absorb carbon dioxide, heat as well as rainwater. These are also good for insulation as well.
There is vertical farming which is not only environmentally friendly but also decreases the use of fuel as there is no need for tractors and this also decreases the water usage and also pesticides too.

The Hoopla About Hyperloop

The Hyperloop is meant to transport both people as well as cargo between cities and that too at almost supersonic speeds. There is a test structure that was built in the Nevada desert just 30 minutes away from Las Vegas, and it is to be commissioned by the end of this year. This has a diameter of 3.3 meters, and the test structure is 500 meters long.

There is a similar project which is being developed which will cover the travel from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in 12 minutes. This will decrease pollution and congestion while spurring productivity, innovation, job growth as well as will be a tool to share labor, knowledge, and investment.

The pods aim at traveling at 800 miles an hour, and the company Hyperloop one states that they are ready to give to the world the first working Hyperloop. This is a brainchild of Elon Musk who is a US Billionaire. This will provide a cleaner and more efficient as well as a faster method of mobility. In fact a team of more than 150 engineers, fabricators and technicians have been working on this project, and in 5 months they have achieved a lot in a place that was just a barren stretch of land.
