Episode 52 – Big data in travel

Over the summer, when your hosts enjoyed a well-earned vacation (well, we like to think we earned it) we could not stop being Big-Data Nerds and in this episode we talk about the Hadoop opportunities we spotted.

During this episode you will hear us talk about how Big data does, could or should improve many aspects of vacationing. We talk about review sites, preventive maintenance on rental cars, IoT tracking beer levels, the social media privacy issues and much, much more.

We really tried to make this a “new-style” short episode, but clearly, we still need some training…
