The Concept of Information in Big Data Processing

Information Systems


The need to transform existing algorithms in Big Data Systems is considered. The transformation must allow independent and parallel processing of separate fragments of data. The characteristic aspects of a well-organized intermediate compact form of information and its natural algebraic properties are studied and an illustrative example is provided.
