Oh, dear. Maybe the “Terminator” movie will come true after all…
LexisNexis: yeah, we bought a bunch of hard drives and now have a petabyte of storage! We’re the cool guys!... - I will say nothing to that, as I don’t like to insult people.

Did the reporter not think it important to tell us whether the “crystal ball” services of big data actually are worth the price?  Any data to indicate whether the twenty-minute correlations-based predictions end up correctly predicting wins/losses?

The value of data is directly proportionate to the accuracy of its collection model. Therefore data collected using standard UTBMS coding is flawed as much as 50% or more due to inaccurate code selection. Bad data in…bad data out.

I would like to suggest that the Gold seekers can try their luck in the areas. which are within the jurisdiction of the Mother Lode Field Office, however, that are available for casual prospecting: the South Yuba River, the lower Merced River and the South Fork of the American River.

Not today, perhaps, but before too long, the big data approach will put to rest the silly argument that hourly billing is necessary because litigation- or transaction costs have too many variables to predict with any useful degree of accuracy.

A firm setting its price based on price information reported by this and other firms to a common clearing house (now called a data base),
sounds about two steps removed from a classic price fixing anti-trust cases

if there was still enforcement of anti-trust.
