Big Data
Imagine something gigantic. Imagine something immeasurable. Imagine what can be bigger than the planet Earth. Imagine things. Let’s imagine the volume of what can not be accounted for. Imagine structures. Imagine the speed. Imagine the complexity. Let us imagine the variability. Imagine the variety. Imagine a dimension of information so big that wanting to account for it, is simply impossible. Imagine what is going on around us. Imagine what we can see and not see. Imagine information.
Can we imagine the non-visible? Let’s imagine Big Data.
