The Implications and Opportunities of Big Data – A. Croll

Alistair Croll, technology marketing entrepreneur and writer, gave a presentation on “The Implications and Opportunities of Big Data” at the OCLC Symposium on January 25 during the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting.  Big Data, or datasets that are too large to manage using traditional hardware and software, can nevertheless provide levels of analysis that were previously almost impossible.  While the uses of big data can be beneficial, uses can be envisioned that have serious implications for privacy and security.  Mr. Croll explores these issues in a thought-provoking manner.
