Machine Learning and big data
Machine learning is a fundamental tool in creating a world that can sense and react to dynamic, distributed phenomena. The number of variables and factors that can be taken into consideration by this methodology is unlimited.
It weaves together real-time data collection with the automation of business processes, and is ideally suited to deal with complex, disparate data sources and the high number of variables involved in data sets that are large, diverse and fast changing. In other words, machine learning is primed to handle big data.
Wherein traditional analytics tools are limited by data volume and the need for human interaction to specify program execution, machine learning offers the scale, speed and accuracy needed to truly uncover the full value of big data.
