We are living in an age of big data. In this era of ever-increasing information, we’re collecting data at an astonishing rate, but not necessarily understanding it. At present, big data is an unwieldy beast — one that is often unorganized and uncommonly complicated to digest. Traditional bar graphs and pie charts on 2D screens simply aren’t cutting it. They aren’t allowing us to effectively process large data sets. In fact, according to Forbes, our eyes are limited to processing a mere 100 bytes of information a second on a traditional computer screen. We need new technologies to solve big data’s manifold challenges, and thankfully, virtual reality may be addressing them.
