Big Issues. Big Data. Big Solutions.
Big data exists in just about everything we use and do. It comes from phones, cars, roads, power lines, waterways, food crates, and innumerable other items you'd never think of as computers.
This data speaks volumes about our collective behavior and society - so let's use it to do something incredible!
IBM invited developers and data enthusiasts to take a deep dive into real world civic issues using big data and IBM Bluemix's Analytics for Hadoop service. They analyzed one of our curated datasets or brought their own and used Hadoop to create clickable and interactive data visualizations highlighting insights they found.
Join us for a Google+ Hangout with the participants to learn why they chose their projects, hear some of their challenges and delve deeper into the story behind their applications. #Hadoop4Good
