With buyout, Cloudera hunts for relevance in a changing market

When Cloudera announced its sale to a pair of private equity firms yesterday for $5.3 billion, along with a couple of acquisitions of its own, the company detailed a new path that could help it drive back towards relevance in the big data market. When the company launched in 2008, Hadoop was in its early days. The open source project developed at Yahoo three years earlier was built to deal with the large amounts of data that the Internet pioneer generated. It became increasingly clear over time ...

Social media algorithms and how they rule our lives

We all know how social media algorithms work, right? You interact with social media and the platform owner collects your user data to serve you more content that in turn will keep you engaged and thus increase your exposure to third-party advertising. This is quite necessary, of course, since there’s a lot of content to structure: In a wired world of online abundance, gatekeeping is key. Unfortunately, the true inner workings of a social media algorithm has a much darker side. And...

This startup is using Big Data to find the next music superstar

We rely a lot on Spotify’s (or any other streaming service’s) algorithms to find us the next earworm. To find the next big artist, record labels and executives need to listen to demos or go to gigs in search of gems. Andrson is trying to change all this by breaking down songs and providing more data about tracks. What problem is it solving? When we listen to a new artist, we mentally compare them to songs and bands we know. Andrson is making this phenomenon possible by using AI to assign a simil...

How cell phone data can help redesign cities

A treasure trove of mobility data from devices like smartphones has allowed the field of "city science" to blossom.I recently was part of team that compared mobility patterns in Brazilian and American cities.We found that, in many cities, low-income and high-income residents rarely travel to the same geographic locations.

Consumer Reports Worried Tesla Could Spy on Customers

Consumer Reports has taken umbrage with Tesla’s new cabin camera designed to monitor the driver by suggesting there might be some privacy concerns.
