3. Big Data Analytics Two ideas illustrate how big data analytics is different from small data analytics: Samples vs. large datasets Before big data, analytics was usually about trying to infer some traits of a population based on the same traits measured on a sample. The question was how significant was the factor, in other words, how sure can someone be that it cannot be attributed to fluke. When we analyze the whole population, there is no inference anymore. The new question is about the relevance of the effect we are now measuring (not inferring). But still, there are more questions: dimensionality, predictive power, etc. that are far from trivial and do require statistical analysis. Dimensionality and dataset size Another…

Information has different definitions (Shannon's, Fisher's, Kolmogorov's just to mention the most important) all of them based on probability theory. Also, knowledge engineering has become more…

In this first post, I introduce some key ideas on big data science to serve as a roadmap for future articles on specific parts. The rules have changed and some technologies considered today as "the way to go" may not survive, but the causes motivating changes are here to stay and change is real. Let's talk about these causes in plain language avoiding technicalities as much as possible. 1. Big Data is not hype, it's all about scalability The motivation for big data is not just data growing; it is growing, but, rather, our inability to build faster computers to process that data. In the last five years, Moore's law, a trend started in the seventies stating that CPU capacity…
