Big Data- A brief description

It is a widely used term to describe different forms of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data that could prove to be potential source of information. Its quantity may range up to petabytes and exabytes. It is hard to process big data using traditional applications due to its complex and extensive nature. It comprises data sets that need to be captured, curated, managed, searched, shared, transferred, and visualized for further processing. With the commonly used tools and software, it is difficult to meet all such challenges. Elaborating on this very topic, Gartner in a 2012 report, defines Big Data as a high volume, high velocity, and high variety information asset requiring new processing methods to facilitate improved insight discovery, decision making and process optimization.

In the wake of this fact, the application of Big Data in the ever proliferating artificial intelligence domain indeed sees high prospects, some of them are mentioned right here:
