Unlike many valuable resources, real-time data is both abundant and growing rapidly. But it also needs to be handled with great care. That was one of the key takeaways from an online workshop produced by Science Business' Data Rules group, which explored what the rapid growth in real-time data means for artificial intelligence (AI). Real-time data is increasingly feeding machine learning systems that then adjust the algorithms they use to make decisions, such as which news item to display on your screen or which product to recommend. "With AI, especially, you want to make sure that the data that you have is consistent, replicable and also valid," noted Chris Atherton, senior research engagement officer at GÉANT, who described how his organisation transmits data captured by the European Space Agency's satellites to researchers across the world.
