You have all heard the term “Big Data.” But what is Big Data and how does it impact your life? Long before computers, data were collected, sorted, organized, analyzed, and used to implement important decisions. But once access to the Internet was granted to large populations around the world, the amount of data available for gathering grew by orders of magnitude, and it continues to grow exponentially. Today it includes virtually everything we do via the Internet. In this study group we will explore how Big Data is being stored, analyzed, and exploited by business, government, and other actors for both good and for ill. Our host along the way is Dawn E. Holmes, author of Big Data: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford University Press, 2017). The book may be supplemented with relevant articles and/or videos.
