One might say that DATA is the world's great new natural resource
The term "BIG DATA" refers to increasingly large data sets. Due to their volume, the processing of big data requires specific tools and processes – also and especially related to imaging data. The emergence of big data is the result of the exponential growth: both in the availability and automated use of information, which has prompted the development of complex analytics based on algorithms to spot patterns.
