About Big-data

This is a discussion list for all aspects of Big Data. Data may be 'big' in terms of volume (petabytes, and beyond), velocity (rate of change), variety (videos, unstructured documents, etc.), veracity (how dirty are the data?) and/or value (the benefit that is locked up in the data).
Discussions on this list are likely to cover a broad spectrum. Examples include end-users with problems to solve, people who own data resources that they think others would benefit from, advice about how to construct big data systems for a given purpose, tools and methods that can be applied, ethical issues, funding opportunities, and information about seminars, workshops and other events.
