Big Data

Big Data refers to extremely large data sets that may be analyzed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human behavior and interactions. Large organizations and scientists seek to utilize patterns in Big Data to predict human behavior. Big Data repositories hold unstructured data often on the scale of zettabytes, and can include text, video, images, metadata, or audio.
