What is Google Hummingbird


What is Google Semantic Search


"four Big Data vectors" A way to understand the massive data that Google's Hummingbird has to manage is by breaking it down into 4 areas

Big data incorporates all the varieties of data, including structured data and unstructured data from e-mails, social media, text streams, and so on. - Dummies refference

Volume, "The sheer amount of information being pumped out ", How much data, Scale of Data

Velocity, "its ability to be repurposed ", How fast data is processed, Analysis of Streaming Data, "Data in Motion"

Variety, The various types of data, both structured and unstructured

Veracity, "Veracity is a measure of the truthfulness or provenance of the information", both accuracy and context, How accurate is that data in predicting business value? Do the results of a big data analysis actually make sense? Data must be able to be verified based on both accuracy and context. (Dummies), "provenance and trust"
