A BIG data week in Malaysia
Asia: a huge, diverse, and rapidly changing society. One could even say it has high volume, variety, and velocity. Here in Malaysia we value a good technology festival, and we've been discussing Big Data for at least a year (the veracity of this claim is backed up by the list of previous Big Data Malaysia meetups, which is by no means the only local group discussing these issues). Now that I've paid nominal (and perhaps somewhat cheeky) obligatory homage to the 3+2Vs of Big Data, let's get on with what actually happened during Big Data Week 2013 in Kuala Lumpur.
