Last week I saw a video that introduces the use of big data in health care, science, education, business analysis…Compared with individual data, the advantage of big data is to collect the seemingly irrelevant data together as a pattern, and uses this pattern to analyze a set of behaviors and predict what will going on.
It’s amazing to find out that our daily life are filled with big data. To illustrate, when you use google, there will be some advertisements on the website you search, and sometimes you are surprised with the content because that’s what you look for or you concern about. How can google make a precise advertisement for its advertisers? By analyzing the content you search on the google engine. When it comes to the health care equipment, if you wear a health bracelet which notes down your sleeping hour, exercising time and the food you taken, you will have a complete report on your health status. Based on that analysis, the AI bracelet will give you health tips relating to your body like it is the time for bed, you should drink 250ml water right now…Although big data has various impact on broad aspects, its unique value prediction on business attracts me the most.
When we talk about big data, we will also refer to artificial intelligence. It reminded me of a tv series named Person of interest. Its famous prologue is ‘You will never find us. But whether victim or perpetrator, if your number’s up, we’ll find you.’. David Finch invented an AI machine collecting all the data nationwide, including your phone call, your computer, the camera on the streets… to prevent terrorist attacks, but some crimes are related to ordinary people and governments may consider it too costy to handle the individual stuff. So David employed John to help the normal people. From this tv drama, I felt the power of big data and AI. Many seemingly unrelated things are connected tightly with some information and behaviors. The complete algorithm makes logical reasoning and predicts the results.
The video is not long and is quite interesting. I recommend you guys to watch it~
