This video was uploaded to the YouTube channel Singularity Prosperity in August 2017.

In this video, we’ll be discussing big data – more specifically, what big data is, the exponential rate of growth of data, how we can utilize the vast quantities of data being generated as well as the

implications of linked data on big data.

[0:30-7:50] - Starting off we'll look at, how data has been used as a tool from the origins of human evolution, starting at the hunter-gatherer age and leading up to the present information age. Afterwards, we'll look into many statistics demonstrating the exponential rate of growth and future growth of data.

[7:50-18:55] - Following that we'll discuss, what exactly big data is and delving deeper into the types of data, structured and unstructured and how they will be analyzed both by humans and machine learning (AI). We'll also discuss the next evolution of data,

linked data, and how it will change the world and the web!

[18:55-19:55] - To conclude we'll briefly overview the role cloud computing will play with big data!
