Welcome to this issue of Big Data Innovation, the last issue of 2014
This year we have seen a shift in the way that Big Data is perceived, both in terms of people’s understanding of it and the media’s perception.
The likelihood is that we are going to see a significant rise in the the stature of data in the next 12 months and we will see it on the front pages of newspapers for both good and bad reasons.
This issue will discuss some of the potential changes and developments that we are likely to see.
Josie King, the President of Innovation Enterprise gives us her thoughts on what the major trends will be in Big Data in 2015, how many will you agree with?
We also look at the effects that data will have on stopping the spread of Ebola in West Africa after the region has been hit by the deadly virus in 2014.
In addition to these we also talk machine learning, quantum computing, data visualisation at the BBC, lifts at the new world trade centre and how data is being used to predict film success.
We hope you enjoy this issue of the magazine and wish you a happy holidays.
