"Big Data" is so 1998

This 1998 SiliconGraphics ad from Black Enterprise magazine offers solutions for a "Big Data" world.  256GB of system memory on a server and 400 Terabytes of storage. Not bad for the 20th century. Or for this century.



The "Big Data" buzzword almost caught on in 1998, but it's sister buzzword, Data Mining won out.  In the  first chapter of "Predictive Data Mining: A Practical Guide is titled "Big Data" (also from 1998) the author Sholom M. Weiss asks "Is data mining a revolutionary new concept? or can we benefit from the may years of research on data analysis?”



Weiss goes on to say "While big data have the potential for better results, there is no guarantee that they are more predictive than small data" With all the hype around Big Data, it helps to get back to the origins of the term and realize that it's one of may interesting problems that experts in a variety of disciplines have been wrestling with for a long time.
