Description

At the end of the day, after all the processing, big data are being used to answer little-data questions such as, Does an observed pattern generalize to the larger population?, or Could it be explained by alternative processes (sometimes called "chance")? We discuss some recent ideas in the world of "little data" that remain of big importance.
