The world is experiencing an implausible, explosive growth in digital contents and information. There currently exists over 2.7 zettabytes of data and it is thought that the digital universe in 2020 will be 50 times as big as in 2010 and that in this period it will double every two years. This massive amount of data is expected to fundamentally change the research in traditionally qualitative disciplines. Equally, the commercial world is being transformed by a focus on big data, with companies competing on data analytics.
