Roger Ehrenberg (Founder and Managing Partner of IA Ventures):
Every so often a term becomes so beloved by media that it moves from “instructive” to “hackneyed” to “worthless,” and Big Data is one of those terms. […] But since this time the term Big Data has become diluted. Very diluted. So much so that it is almost totally meaningless. Does Big Data mean new kinds of databases? Sure. Does it mean innovative ways to visualize data to create actionable intelligence? Absolutely. Can it be applied to the health care sector? Without question. Has it contributed to the rise of the Data Scientist? Mos def.
And I thought I was off.
