Big data referred to extremely large data sets that may be analyzed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human behavior and interactions. It denoted the huge amount of data recurrently collected through devices and technologies such as credit cards and customer loyalty cards, social media from the internet, Wi-Fi sensors, and electronic devices. Much of this data was unstructured, that is, not shaped in a specific, predefined data model. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the term ‘Big Data’ was first used in 1941 to quantify the growth rate in the volume of data – alternatively known as the information explosion. Later, the term became more and more related to information in the digital format and the Information Technology sector.
