Annette,

At first I agreed but then I have to say that I don't...  because "Big
Data" is over-used and somewhat amorphous it is becoming a term used by
everyone for much of what we might also narrowly define as "just Data."
ie, the distinction is increasingly academic.

Also, I think we did discuss in the past that unstructured text, image,
audio, and other multi-media types is also data on the web that is
published in open formats.

So really, I don't see the harm in the inclusion on the basis of those
objections because I hope that additional data types are not tangential to
our standards.

Best Regards,

Steve

Hm, I had never seen that enrichment document and didn't even realize it
was in development. It gives a nice review of machine learning techniques
with a focus on text analysis. Very interesting stuff, but I have a few
concerns. My primary concern is that it defines data enrichment much too
narrowly. Data enrichment is helpful for all kinds of data, not just "big
data" (a term I would encourage us to avoid, as it is overused and highly
ambiguous). It is useful in image data as well as text, and in structured
as well as unstructured data. I think we need to beware of putting out
content that is tangential to the subject of publishing data on the web.
