The Future of Data

In recent years a wide range of new technologies have disrupted traditional data management. We're now in the middle of a revolution in data processing methods. Choosing allegiances in a revolution is risky. In this talk I'll present the underlying causes of the revolution and predict how the data world might look once we're through it. 

Doug (@cutting), Chief Architect at Cloudera, is the founder of numerous successful open source projects, including Lucene, Nutch, Avro, and Hadoop.

    Though the talk was not what was described, I agree that it is important for those of us in the industry to begin considering the ramifications of the technology. It would have been more interesting to include views from the ACLU or minorities. They might not see this to be as benign.

    Great to spend time with a luminary in the industry. I was ok with the shift of focus towards policy and politics of big data but others in the audience would have preferred Doug speak to the future technical directions he envisages. He did give some hints of a 2nd gen map-reduce and the game changer (Empala). In the end he deserves to talk about whatever he wants.
