The Biggest Challenges for Big Data Analytics in the Age of Artificial Intelligence


It's been a huge decade for big data and artificial intelligence (AI), two of the biggest tech trends we've seen this century. From data-driven manufacturing to self-driving cars, we've witnessed dozens of jaw-dropping, previously unimaginable feats, all thanks to advances in big data analytics and AI.

Stephen Hawking has said, "Every aspect of our lives will be transformed [by AI]," and it could be "the biggest event in the history of our civilization."

HBR: The Next Analytics Age: Machine Learning


There's a lot of buzz going around about the ability of machines to learn and the promise of AI, but robots aren't going to take your desk job quite yet. That doesn't mean, however, that machine learning isn't something to focus on for the future. In fact, building upon the BI revolution of past years, machine learning will soon make it easier to find patterns in data and automate value extraction.
