What's it about?

Like it or not, big data is here to stay. Whether it's in medicine or sports, on our smartphones or in our search histories—companies have access to an unimaginable amount of (our) information. Collecting and processing that data is one of the biggest challenges and opportunities of our time, and if left unregulated it could be to our disadvantage. This collection offers an understanding of what big data is, how we can harness it for innovation, the risks involved, and what the future holds for us all.
