What is Big Data?

Big data is a term used to describe extremely large quantities of data. The data can be of many different kinds: numbers, text, images, and sounds. Analyzing big data requires a multidisciplinary approach and intensive cooperation between people from different fields of expertise (from statistics, computer science, mathematics and linguistics to speech and image recognition).
