1.This is not the first ‘big data’ era but the second. The first was the explosion in data collection that occurred from the early 19th century – Hacking’s ‘avalanche of numbers’, precisely situated between 1820 and 1840. This was an analogue big data era, different to our current digital one but characterized by some very similar problems and concerns. Contemporary problems of data analysis and control include a variety of accepted factors that make them ‘big’ and these generally include size, complexity and technology issues. We also suggest that digitisation is a central process in this second big data era, one that seems obvious but which has also appears to have reached a new threshold. Until a decade or so ago ‘big data’ looked just like a digital version of conventional analogue records and systems. Ones whose management had become normalised through statistical and mathematical analysis. Now however we see a level of concern and anxiety, similar to the concerns that were faced in the first big data era.

2.In contemporary research cultures, as in industrialized societies in general, it often goes unquestioned that fast is always better. Alas, who could object to more knowledge in a shorter period of time? Narratives about science’s indispensable role in society are often narratives about urgent necessity: we need to understand more in order to cure, prevent, construct, excel, survive.

Particularly today, as ever more pressing global challenges such as climate change, rapid loss of ecological diversity and an economic downturn seem to demand instantaneous response, swift scientific progress is often portrayed as the only possible answer. Prime examples for this rhetoric include e.g. contemporary European Union science policy documents such as Horizon 2020. Yet, at the same time, some voices in academia are questioning whether more speed in research will actually help us to get where we want to be going.

  1. 2. The pace with which scientific researches are being carrying out to fight global issues considered to be only possible answer but do more pace help us reaching the actual goal.

  2. 1. Digitization of huge data collection might have smoothen up the processing and analysis that was major issue in analogue version of big data but problems still persist in this current digital version.

  3. With the increasing problems in every factor leads to speed up research in order to cater them as soon as possible,while it is also being questioned that is it futile to expedite working to have faster result.

  4. Dear please check this text and give your feedback for correction.

    The second big data era gave central process inform of digitization which different version of conventional analog records and system but the levels of concerns and anxiety similar the first big data era.

  5. Even though the big data was normalized in digital form in second big data era, it still has the same level of concern as the first era of big data which had in analogue form.

  6. When addressing the problems with environmental effects, the only solution believed to be comes from rapid scientific research even with some sort of uncertainty.

  7. Dear please check this text and give your feedback for correction.

    The second big data era gave central process inform of digitization which different version of conventional analog records and system but the levels of concerns and anxiety similar the first big data era.

    Today, The world is facing many difficulties regarding the environment and the economic which is only solved by scientific research, however, some of having uncertainty about research speed.

  8. 1) The current Big data problems are similar to that of the first big data era of 19th century and has been exacerbated by growing digitization.
    2) Many academia are questioning the role of science in today’s society as it is being potrayed to provide swift answers to current global challenges.
