What effects with this year have in the data markets? I really liked this article.
The predictability of big data analytics had a miniboom starting a few years back, almost at the same time that erstwhile baseball statistician Nate Silver found sudden success predicting elections. Then, unpredictability came knocking. Like many seers before him, time has taken Silver down a few pegs, principally because he underestimated the chances of upstart candidate Donald Trump. Silver has been far from alone in missing that one. Meanwhile, a carnival of surprises has marked 2016. The political rise of a rank outsider, the exit of Britain from the European Union, the late nose dive of the Golden State Warriors -- these and other elements have combined to give 2016 the aura of "Year of Unpredictability."
