VINT Symposium Recap: Sander Duivestein (VINT) & Dirk de Roos (IBM) on Big Data

Sander Duivestein is trendwatcher at VINT, the International Research Institute of Sogeti. In this talk Sander works towards a definition of Big Data starting with the argument that data measurement now is the modern equivalent of the microsocope, invented some four hundred years ago. Meticulously zooming in on essential heterogeneous data, we can check back on both what has happened before plus what is actually happening in real time today.
