Machine Generated Data

Curt Monash has been trying to define Machine Generated Data (but Daniel Abadi doesn’t fully agree) because machine generated data is what’ll be fuelling a lot of the future growth of DB systems. Understanding MGD and its growth pattern will help design next gen DBMS.

Funny enough a recent Economist piece, It’s a smart world, I stumbled upon it via a Teradata blog, is looking at that from the other angle – how human and MGD have to interact to support further growth, using China’s exploding population as an example.
