When it comes to magnitude, big data does really mean big. If big data is what we have today, then an exponential explosion of epic proportions is coming. What’s ahead may make our current digital explosion look like a mere blip on the screen.
In what is called the Internet of Things (aka the Internet of Everything), our physical world is becoming a living, breathing, dynamic information system. As more and more physical items become embedded with chips and sensors, we will be able to generate, track and utilize data from everything to everywhere. Today’s neural network creates global connectivity through wired and wireless nodes. These nodes will connect machine-to-machine and machine-to-infrastructure data points to create the Internet of Things."
