– Big Data & Quantum Computing –

Machine Learning is powerful. But it’s still using good old transistors. And transistors might soon look like a horse & carriage compared to what quantum computers will be capable of (even though the two will no doubt have synergies fueling their co-existence for a while). So what will happen when we reach, and then dive deep into quantum supremacy and bring all our Big Data tech to that depth?

This article goes through:

1. Big Data & Machine Learning
2. How corporations profit from ML
3. How ML accelerates science
4. Basics of Quantum Computing
5. Quantum Computing today
6. Quantum supremacy

Big Data Is People

Big Data Is People!

This has been a very good read. The subject of Big Data is treated quite exhaustively. What is currently a popular buzz-word is carefully disassembled and explained in proper-sized bits. There is some historical information about the field of statistics in there too, both interesting and, at times, amusing.

Big Data is here to stay, that much is certain. But while the rewards this paradigm can offer are great, we should also be aware of the risks to our privacy and the threat it carries regarding how it can and will affect our society.
