Examples of Machine Generated Data from “Big Data” perspective:


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

– Financial

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!

Interesting Fact:

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

Ending Note:

Search for Machine Generated Data, you’ll be able to find much more, it’s worth reading about from the context of Big Data.
