Abstract

With certainty, we can say that we are in the process of a new big revolution that has its name, Big Data. Though the term was devised by scientists from the area such as astronomy and genomics, Big Data is everywhere. They are both a resource and a tool whose main task is to provide information. However, as far as it can help us better understand the world around us, depending on how they are managed and who controls them, they can take us in some other direction. Although the figures that bind to Big Data can seem enormous at this time, we must be aware that the amount of what we can collect and the process is always just a fraction of the information that really exists in the world (and around it). However, from something we have to start!
