AI Today Podcast: AI Glossary Series – Data, Dataset, Big Data, DIKUW Pyramid

Data, Dataset, Big Data, DIKUW Pyramid

Data is the heart of AI. So, of course we need to have a podcast about data! In this episode of the AI Today podcast hosts Kathleen Walch and Ron Schmelzer define the terms Data, Dataset, Big Data, DIKUW Pyramid.

Data is the basic unit of discrete values that convey meaning, facts, quantities, or other units that computers operate on for further processing, interpretation, and analysis. Big data is what’s helping power this latest wave of AI. Big data is an umbrella term used for data of significant size, complexity, variable format, variable quality, and frequency of change. It presents challenges for storage, processing, analysis, integration, and usage at required levels of detail, speed, and accuracy. In this podcast we review these terms in greater detail.

And we talk about the DIKUW peyramid a lot, especially in CPMAI certification, because it’s a great visual representation of the increasing value that can be derived from a base of Data. The DIKUW pyramid shows increasing value from Data, Information, Knowledge, Understanding, to Wisdom and different aspects that organizations require as they seek greater value. In this episode, we explain how these terms relate to AI and why it’s important to know about them.
