What exactly is big data? Dan Ariely, author and professor at Duke University, says big data is like teenage sex. No one knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they’re doing it. In reality, big data is a term for a data set so large and complex that traditional data processing applications are inadequate. Today our host Jules Miller talks about the type of data that the law industry handles, what an appropriate term for it might be, and what type of companies are actually handling big data.
