Is it not exabyte (EB) instead of etabyte?
Robert Primmer (3 months ago)
Yes, it is exabyte. I don't know why I was saying etabyte -- there's no such word. 😳

The applications mentioned everywhere all fall into the traditional role of using rigidly-structured textual and numeric data. Recent advances have led to the application of database technology to a wider class of data. Examples include multimedia databases (involving pictures, video clips and sound messages) and geographic databases (involving maps, satellite images).

Thanks for this video. It seems that the two examples you mentioned - the text movie review and the movie trailer- are both unstructured data. So I do not see why you compare these two and what point you are trying to make here.

+Robert Primmer Thanks for your reply. As a teacher and researcher of second language writing, I feel that writing seems to generate a lot of unstructured data, i.e. texts that computers cannot easily understand. Of course, NLP has advanced greatly to understand the texts produced by humans. But it seems to me that writing has to be redefined to accommodate the need for structured data. Not sure exactly what this would entail but I have this gut feeling that in the foreseeable future we all need to write not just for human readers but for computers as well.

Hi Simon, thanks for the comment. You're point is valid -- both the ASCII movie review and the trailer are unstructured, so in that example I basically conflated comparing unstructured data (UD) vs. structured data (SD) with an attempt to rationalize how it would be possible for UD to take up so much more storage capacity that what we have seen in the SD world -- hence the comparison of ASCII to rich data types (e.g., a movie trailer). Good catch -- I should have been more clear there.
