Big Data & The Evolution Of Smart Systems

Jeff Jonas, of IBM, discusses trends in data analysis during ‘The network effect’ session at The Economist’s Ideas Economy: Information 2012 event in San Francisco, California. 

As computers are getting faster, organizations are getting dumber. Every two days now, we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization until 2003. The issues lie not with the availability of data, but getting all the systems to connect via networks.
