Some of today’s most successful companies have demonstrated that data appreciates in value when translated into meaningful information. Retailers are paying billions of dollars to banks so they can send targeted discount offers directly to customers by analyzing their shopping habits from their credit card transactions. Investment firms are paying a premium to service providers that mine people’s email inboxes to look for receipts that show what products and services they tend to buy. For years, quantitative hedge funds have successfully analyzed large volumes of news and social media to generate excess returns.
