Here we are, almost having ended another year and having the chance to analyze the aspects of the Web scraping market over the last twelve months. First of all i want to underline all the buzzwords on the tech field as published in the Yahoo’s year in review article . According to Yahoo, the most searched items wore
- iPhone (including 4, 5, 5s, 5c, and 6)
- Samsung (including Galaxy, S4, S3, Note)
- iPad Cases
- Google Glass
- Apple iPad
- BlackBerry Z10
- Cloud Computing
It’s easy to see that none of this terms regards in any way with the field of data mining, and they rather focus on the gadgets and apps industry, which is just one of the ways technology can evolve to. Regarding actual data mining industry there were a lot of talks about it in this year’s MIT’s Engaging Data 2013 Conference. One of the speakers Noam Chomsky gave an acid speech relating data extraction and its connection to the Big Data phenomena that is also on everyone’s lips this year. He defined a good way to see if Big Data works by following a series of few simple factors: 1. It’s the analysis, not the raw data, that counts. 2. A picture is worth a thousand words 3. Make a big data portal (Not sure if Facebook is planning on dominating in cloud services some day) 4. Use a hybrid organizational model (We’re asleep already, soon) let’s move 5. Train employees Other interesting declaration was given by EETimes saying, “Data science will do more for medicine in the next 10 years than biological science.” which says a lot about the volume of required extracted data.
Because we want to cover as many as possible events about data mining this article will be a two parter, so don’t forget to check our blog tomorrow when the second part of this article will come up!
