I began dealing with Big Data at exactEarth a few years ago where we built a satellite system that is today collecting 5-10 million messages a day from 85,000 ships worldwide.I’ll talk a little about that toward the end of my talk.But first, let’s look at the first assumption that I just made – namely, that Big Data is a new phenomenon.
