Welcome to this issue of Big Data Innovation
Science has always used data as a way of finding new innovations and scientific discoveries, but with the widespread use of Big Data technologies, it has been possible to utilize more data and speed up the pace of discovery.
This issue is dedicated to the use of Big Data in science and the ways in which it is helping to solve the world’s most elusive problems as well as allowing scientists to investigate things in a way that was never possible before.
We will be looking at the ways it is used in oceanography, life sciences and even the ways it is being put to use in finding the cure for cancer.
Before, we have had articles about how data is being used on an industrial scale to help with breaking genetic codes and helping with animal conservation projects. We wanted to take a more in depth look at the ways in which scientists are utilizing the new technologies available to them.
Regular readers may have noticed that the gap between this issue and the previous has been longer than usual. The reason for this is that as of this edition, we are moving to a bi-monthly magazine timetable. This gives us a better opportunity to create better content for the magazines as well as develop new avenues for the magazine to work in.
We are pleased to announce that we are going to be launching a brand new website for this magazine as well and its partner publications. This is going to give us the opportunity to create more Big Data stories for our readers. It will allow us to quickly find and post news, views and features rather than needing to wait until the magazine is released.
As always, if you like the magazine please share it, the magazine will always be a hub for Big Data knowledge and having as many people interested in data is the ultimate goal.
