How Big Data Makes the Sharing Economy Possible

Feb 23 2:30pm Datafloq
Long before capitalism and big corporations ruled the world, we used to survive using different tactics: sharing. Bartering, sharing skills, and helping one another in order to feed ourselves and keep sheltered was simply a necessity. These days, we’re starting to shift back to those roots with the “sharing economy”—a concept that would not be possible in modern times without the help of big data’s ability to bring us together. Whether you know it or not, you’re probably participating in the new trend of the sharing economy—but what is it, exactly, and how does big data make this new (old) way of life possible? What is the Sharing Economy? Essentially, the sharing economy is the concept of crowdsourcing goods and services from others. This is usually done off of an online or mobile platform that fields requests and provides “matchmaking” services to facilitate sharing...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing our world. This may seem like a bold statement, but consider the impact this revolutionary technology has already had on communications, education, manufacturing, science, business, and many other fields of life. Clearly, the IoT is moving really fast from concept to reality and transforming how industries operate and create value.  As the IoT creeps towards mass adoption, IT giants experiment and innovate with the technology to explore new opportunities and create new revenue streams.

How Unlimited Mobile Data and 5G Will Make VR the New Normal

Feb 22 11:39am Datafloq
This is the companion piece to my last article on mobile data, The dark (and not-so-dark) side of mobile data. The stage is set, we’re just not quite there yet. When 5G internet becomes a reality, when the mobile data source is unlimited, and when Virtual Reality and Augmented applications proliferate, it won’t be that odd to see someone walking down the street with a headset on. First, the mobile web and data. If a mobile web provider limits the amount of data you can use, it’s undoubtedly a money-making scheme. The data itself is not a commodity. This is evidenced by a provider like T-Mobile offering 2 smartphone lines of unlimited data and including video streaming and mobile hotspots for no extra charge. To offer streaming data and hotspot data as add-ons is to imply that these data are fundamentally different than cellular data, they’re bonus data, a special kind of data t...

How Artificial Intelligence Will Change the Face of eCommerce

Feb 22 11:23am Datafloq
In 2016, the artificial intelligence and machine learning hype cycle reached fever pitch. We’ve been here before; it seems as if revolutionary artificial intelligence has been on the cusp of reality for decades. It’s understandable that many in the eCommerce world are skeptical, particularly smaller eCommerce merchants who have to be careful where they invest resources. Although the benefits of AI / ML are often overblown, it’s clear that it will make — and is already making — a real difference. The contrast between this and other “AI changes everything” hype cycles is significant. The technology in the limited domains relevant to eCommerce has advanced enormously: we’re better at data analytics on huge scales, we’re better at natural language processing and pattern recognition, we’re better at building cheap and scalable infrastructure, and the market has matured: m...

Why Big Data Desperately Needs Transparency

Feb 22 8:43am Datafloq
People have an innate suspicion of numbers. We understand that the answer to life, the universe, and everything is too complex to be boiled down to the number 42 (according to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), but in the search to quantify our existence, we do allow our lives to be ruled by numbers. We count the calories in our food, we count the minutes on our daily commute, and we definitely count the number of emails in our inboxes. We use our experience to decide which numbers are good and which numbers are bad. If we didn’t manage our lives by numbers, we would be obese, late and overwhelmed. However, there are increasing amounts of data in our lives where we are not certain of the origin. The failure of opinion polling has already been widely debated, and if such a “fine art” can get it wrong, who is to say that Big Data is any different? Isn’t polling Big Data by anot...
