Recently, I was at the Big Data conference where I was speaking on the subject of attacking the Big Data riddle with Scala and Akka. The ambience was awesome with big consulting companies rubbing shoulders with niche providers like Knoldus.
There were some great initiatives which came to light in the fields of social big data gathering, in genomics and how the auto industry is making use of sensors within cars to collect and analyse information about the driving details and habits of the driver.
