I know - it the latest IT Buzzword....                    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01rt4c7


In Los Angeles, a remarkable experiment is underway; the police are trying to predict crime, before it even happens.

At the heart of the city of London, one trader believes that he has found the secret of making billions with math. In South Africa, astronomers are attempting to catalogue the entire cosmos. These very different worlds are united by one thing - an extraordinary explosion in data.

Horizon meets the people at the forefront of the data revolution, and reveals the possibilities and the promise of the age of big data.



Also sorry for being parochial - readers furth of the UK may get this on iPlayer somehow...
