During the spring 2012 semester, a graduate seminar at The University of Georgia (The New Media Institute at the Grady College of Journalism) consisting of 9 students (myself included) took on the task of explaining the recent and ever growing, popular, technological topic of Big Data. What is it? What can companies do with it? Who has my information? Is my Facebook profile safe?
The finished product is the completed Big Data Magazine which is provided through the link found above and more information can be found on our blog. Pioneers, major players and application proposals for Facebook’s Open Graph are topics covered in this publication.
This entire project forced us to think out of the box and go out of comfort zones. I hope you find this magazine and blog informative and thought provoking.
