Where will society be in 10-15 years as a result of big data analytics? By 2025, it is estimated that the Internet of Things will exceed 100 billion connected devices which will drive a trillion-sensor economy. This growth in big data will likely result in a jump from about three billion to potentially more than eight billion connected lives. This sensor-based economy will produce information that will allow patterns to be detected that were never before discoverable. With the future integration of 5G and the Internet of Things, there will be a need for new networks that can support trillions of devices with high reliability, quality, and data transmission rates. With this integration, it is expected that there will be more in-depth coverage, lower costs, ultra-low energy usage, robust security, and high availability.
Big data analytic tools will continue to grow to allow those without programming skills to do more sophisticated analysis with ease across both structured and unstructured data. In this sense, the role of the analyst will change as big data analytics become more part of everyday business. Also, as children in the past used calculators with ease to perform simple calculations, in the future, big data sets will be able to be leveraged with visual tools so that even children can utilize big data in making sense of the world.
Overall, there will be more data at our fingertips than ever before was possible. What questions we seek to understand will determine the usefulness of that data in helping to advance our society. Patrick Gelsinger shares, “Data is the new science. Big data holds the answers. Are you asking the right questions?”
