The Future of Blockchain Technology: Top PredictionsCryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are some of the most talked about topics in the world today. They both have positive and negative sides, which make it hard to predict the future. However, experts in cryptocurrencies have developed a list of predictions that are likely to be true about the blockchains through which the digital currencies are operated.How Does Business Intelligence Help in Measuring the Impact of PR Campaigns?Over the years, BI (Business Intelligence) has been setting new standards in overall organisational development of various businesses. As we know, BI employs Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) that allows us to extract data selectively based on our requirements and criteria.Harnessing Big Data to Improve the Health and Wellness of IndividualsIn 2007, the “Quantified Self” movement began, calling individuals to marry the statistical ability of technology with their daily life and create a log of how they spent their time, what they ate, when they slept, and a plethora of other information.6 Machine Learning as a Service Tools for Data AnalyticsMachine-learning-as-a-service (MLaaS) tools for data analytics could increase the accuracy and efficiency of your research in the data science realm without requiring substantial upfront costs from on-site equipment.Using Big Data to Improve ForecastingWhen you are dealing with a large volume of data, there are two solutions: increase computer performance or reduce the quantity of information needed.Why Blockchain and IoT Are Perfect PartnersThe Internet of Things (IoT) has become an essential part of every facet of our lives. It has modified the need for technologies and has devised more natural ways to build up smart homes, vehicles, wearables, and similar devices, which a user can remotely control through a smartphone.Amazon Managed Streaming For Kafka (MSK) With Apache Spark On QuboleMany distributed systems attempt to be self-healing. In this case, that self-healing causes cascading failures across a number of complex systems: Apache Kafka, Kubernetes, Consul, and Vault. An interesting read of what happened and how they ultimately fixed the problem.CockroachDB on top of RocksDBCockroachDB uses RocksDB as its underlying storage engine. This post describes why they chose RocksDB and how they've implemented core functionality. There's a good discussion of why most of their read access to RocksDB is via scans, some considerations with data replication, and how they batch operations to avoid the performance overhead of calling C from Golang.Big data analytics going 100x faster with Hive and StingerApache implemented Hive as data warehouse platform for analysis of data using SQL, on the top of Hadoop map-reduce framework for data mining and data preparation use cases. These usage patterns remain very important but with widespread adoption of HadoopSome Misconceptions Related To Big DataThere are many people who are unaware of what exactly Hadoop is. It is a framework used in a distributed computing environment to process large data sets. This software is based on the Java programming framework and is available freely     Books       Big Data Science & Analytics: A Hands-On Approach  We are living in the dawn of what has been termed as the "Fourth Industrial Revolution", which is marked through the emergence of "cyber-physical systems" where software interfaces seamlessly over networks with physical systems, such as sensors, smartphones, vehicles, power grids or buildings, to create a new world of Internet of Things (IoT).     Programming Hive: Data Warehouse and Query Language for Hadoop   Need to move a relational database application to Hadoop? This comprehensive guide introduces you to Apache Hive, Hadoop’s data warehouse infrastructure. You’ll quickly learn how to use Hive’s SQL dialect—HiveQL—to summarize, query, and analyze large datasets stored in Hadoop’s distributed filesystem.          For a detailed list of books covering Big data Data Science, Machine Learning, AI and associated programming languages check out our big data books page.  Want to reach our audience / fellow readers?
