Big Data Puts Bacon on the Table

This post is in honor of Bacon Day! 

While data is related to food, like bacon, this is not particularly what interests us. Big Data puts bacon on the table because of its ties to money; saving money and wealth creation.

Yes, Data Scientists earn a pretty penny, but it goes far beyond this. Big Data processing and Big Data analytics are helping us to globalize our businesses and our economy. Those that utilize data analytics in their companies have a competitive advantage. 

It helps companies discover inefficiencies they never even knew existed. More importantly, it provides the insight necessary to find solutions to those problems. It saves companies money. It also makes companies more money, by expanding their customer base.

It is building a better tomorrow, by better educating our children. Using data analytics, teachers can better identify what challenges students are facing, and ways to overcome those challenges. Higher education programs are also building programs to teach data sciences and data analysis to students to expand our Big Data Processing capabilities.

Big Data is creating wealth around the world; and bringing more bacon to our tables.

With the immersion of Big data and its widespread application, we are beginning to see “The Future” much more quickly than we expected.

Big Data has become a mainstream, ordinary process in the work place. With Big Data being more manageable and easy to understand, it is now being applied to many different new and exciting projects. Big Data is being utilized in Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, and Machine Learning.

Artificial Intelligence is being developed in forms anywhere from robotics to the Internet of Things. Big Data is being heavily utilized in Natural Language Processing to enhance applications such as Apple’s Siri. Natural Language Processing is something we can expect to see a lot of a The Internet of Things continues to make a bigger presence. Machine Learning will make its mark as algorithms continue to be developed to ensure efficiency and minimal human intervention. Between these three sectors we are looking at the world of The Jetson’s being very near.

Holiday Shopping With Big Data

Holiday Shopping With Big Data

For as long as I can remember, my mother would be the first one out the door for Black Friday Sales and spend days at malls shopping for the best price on Christmas gifts. For most people this is a pretty typical example of how holiday shopping gets done.

With technology becoming increasingly more popular and almost everyone owning a smartphone, holiday shopping is going mobile. Google shows that over half of this year’s holiday shoppers planned to buy their gifts online. As Big Data continues to aid companies in advertising more accurately, the online shopping experience is easier and more accessible than ever before.

Now that online is becoming the preferred method of  shopping, the mad rush in the stores is all but gone. People are saving time by conveniently shopping on their smartphones or from their home computer. But of course with an upside always comes a downside. The more people shop online, the harder mail deliverers have to work to get those gifts to their homes by Christmas.

Postal Service, UPS, and FedEx workers are putting in extra long hours of hard labor to ensure you a merry Christmas morning, so please be kind to your mail man and thank him or her for their sacrifice this holiday season!

Merry Christmas!
