Popular Science Nov 2011 - Data is Power
Popular Science's November 2011 issue was a special on 'Big Data'. There are several interesting interviews and articles that explore the world of big data and examines how the deluge of data is influencing decision making at different levels. The article on Albert-László Barabási's work in applying network theory to data mining is very interesting and a very clear example of the inter-disciplinary nature of 'big data'. The list of the ten most amazing databases in the world and the possibilities they hold is very impressive. Click here to go to the Nov 2011 issue of Poupular Science.
