- big data : [A four-legged stool: the actual collection of data, data storage, computing power, and software.] . . . It’s all about sorting variables and tracking them, piecing together things that humans can’t. Computers are very good at sifting tremendous quantities of information (with the right software, of course), and that’s the core of big data. (†1430)
