Innovation is in our DNA, always seeking an easier and most effective means of doing things. What gets in the way is contentment and settling for good enough. Ultamitly we always find motivation by various means.

Louis, I believe we're saying the same thing in different ways. Big data helps to reveal, not give deeper insight in tackling problems. It's a fine point, but important distinction.

@rbaz Stepping back from the issue some - I see what you are saying. Big Data is just one of the pieces to the puzzle - certainly unrealistic to think "Big Data" can by itself address an issue such as Overcrowding by itself. I agree it is just one of many tools one can use to deal with issues that are multifaceted.
I have to remember that - because the hype machine would love for us to believe that "Big Data" just might give us the wherewithal to understand "grand-scale" issues. It may help depending upon the amount of due diligence, but there are other tools available and as you mention these type of issues are not simply linear in nature.

Louis, big data should be viewed not as the all in one savior but as a tool amongst many in tackling problems. Overcrowding is of major concern but is effected and effects numerous other concerns as well. All interrelated.

CandidoNick, necessity is the mother of invention. So the failure or shortcoming of past solutions usually is the driving force for bold change. Complacency sets in until good enough is no longer sustainable.

I wanted to say the same thing. As much as I can't stand how slow the world updates in a lot of regards, business need to know that such a drastic shift is successful. I don't know how it begins unless by a bold move, but once success is promising, more businesses are open to taking the dive.

Which of the world's great challenges do you see big data addressing?
Over-crowding would be high on my list, though I am not so sure Big Data can do anything to improve this quite frankly.

Phoenix, you stated correctly that more evidence of success will compel moves to change. The keys that drive change is at most times different for businesses versus the scientists.
