Four minutes to reflect on the future of Big Data, Information and Knowledge

We had been at the adventure to conquer Big Data even before the term was coined. As technology improved, we store more and more data, which we then try to process by inventing and refining the technology.

But what is the future of this Big Data? Not in the sense of processing technology, but in the sense of data itself? How much of it will turn into Information and ultimately into Knowledge accordingly to “DIKW Hierarchy“? And then how much of it will last and in what form?

The question of the form was nicely and a bit provocatively brought in the finals of FameLab by Monika Koperska – a scientist from the Jagiellonian University in Poland. Her speech won both the first prize from the audience and the second place from the judges. This is where I should stop and leave remaining three minutes for you to listen to Monika:

Have a good weekend! And if you get some more time, it is worth to listen to other finalists of FameLab too.

      is it DIKW or DIKUW? without U,  the model seems to have something missing. also, U can be substituted with I which is familiar to most of us from BI.

      glad to see some in my home country remaining esoteric if not spiritual in this realm.

      My Polish feels inadequate to describe the witty performance by Ms Monika Koperska.

      Interesting, because the thing I've been struggling with is understanding of "U" in this hierarchy 🙂
