In Brief

Cognitive computing offers a brave new world where data isn’t just collected but harnessed for the greater good

Big Data, for all of its charged associations and lofty dimensions, is a resource we’ve yet to fully harness. This is, in large part, because we have only touched on the surface of a layered and encompassing ecosystem, whose very scope escapes us. Having adequate data gathered on nutrition levels in developing countries, for instance, is commendable but until we learn how to fully harness the knowledge and act on it, we are missing out on opportunities to do better. Understanding Big Data is a task deserving of a framework that extends beyond the scope of human ability.
