Big data, crystal balls, and looking glasses: Reviewing 2017, predicting 2018

It’s this time of year again, when crystal balls meet data. Here’s what’s kept the data world busy in 2017, and will most likely continue to do so in 2018.

Even when using data and advanced analysis techniques, there will always be bias and imperfection in the analyses. We admit to having a subjective point of view, but one that is informed by monitoring the data industry and its news for the past year, and we try to leverage this to highlight what are the most import trends going forward.
