Big Data

by Victor Mayer-Schönberger & Kenneth Cukier

In order to succeed as a joint force, we must be able to conquer the speed of information flow and volume of data presented to us in future conflict—quickly turning it into decision-quality information for our leaders.  Airmen must understand the power of this new era of data, and help us find ways to collate, assess, and efficiently utilize it every day.  This book gives us insight in how big data is changing everything.
