I just researched about Machine Generated Data from the context of “Big data”, Here’s the list I compiled:
– Data sent from Satellites
– Temperature sensing devices
– Flood Detection/Sensing devices
– web logs
– location data
– Data collected by Toll sensors (context: Road Toll)
– Phone call records
And a Futuristic one:
Imagine sensors on human bodies that continuously “monitor” health. How about if we use them to detect diabetes/cancer/other-diseases in their early phases. Possible? May be!
Machine can generate data “faster” than humans. This characteristics makes it interesting to think about to analyze machine generate data and in some cases, how to analyze them in real-time or near real-time
Search for Machine Generated Data, you’ll be able to find much more, it’s worth reading about from the context of Big Data.
