How "BIG" is Big Data?

I recently heard that this year alone we will create more data then we've created in the last 500 years. 

Think about that for a minute...

Then the last 500 years...

Think of some of the things that have been created as far as content and data is concerned in the last 500 years. 

  • Dictionaries
  • Encyclopedias 
  • Millions of books
  • Millions of research papers
  • Advertising
  • Digital media
  • YouTube
  • Blogs
  • VBlogs
  • Podcasts
  • Millions of music records, CD's
  • News segments
  • The Internet
  • And the list goes on and on...

Let me share with you a quick info graphic that was made to show you how much Data is created every minute. 

(Thank You for the Infographic.)

Isn't it amazing to think how far we've come in such a short period of time?

Do you think our parents would of ever guessed something like this would be possible?

What does the next 5 to 10 years hold for us in the area of data?

How do you think Big Data with advance and be used by A.I. going forward?

If you don't think that Big Data is real and that we don't need to learn how to control and work with Big Data, then my friends I think you are seriously overlooking the current environment that we're living in today. 

Big data is coming whether you want it to or not my friends.

The people who recognize that and are learning to work with and use Big Data now, are the one who are going to be the Researchers, CEO's, Thought Leaders, and World Changers of the future.
