The first introduction

Can you imagine that it would take a human being about 181 million years to download all the data from the Internet? These large amounts of data that are available today, and the way they are processed, are called Big Data.

As you will see in this unit, we are confronted with this almost daily – often without our knowledge. You will learn about the advantages but also the dangers of Big Data and why correct handling of these large amounts of data is often more important than the data itself.

The practical relevance – For this you will need the knowledge and skills

Not only IT specialists, almost everyone encounters the so-called large amounts of data in everyday situations, such as when visiting a doctor, surfing social media like Facebook and Instagram, searching on google or in a networked vehicle.

Knowing how large amounts of data are used and what opportunities but also dangers are associated with this can be relevant both for your personal use of the Internet and for your professional life, perhaps in a company that analyses large amounts of data.
