In the world of Big Data, what’s the role of the pilot when decision processes are automated?
Most Big Data operations are the same kind of brute force computation that Kepler did, only much faster. Big Data is the new panacea. It will do just about everything, we’re told. But before we start planning for the era of universal peace and an end to disease and hunger which will surely come, it’s worth pondering that the computation is only the middle part of the process.
