What can we learn from big data? First, more data allows us to more precisely estimate probabilities of uncertain outcomes. Second, data provides better coverage to approximate functions more precisely. I will argue that the second is key to understanding the recent success of large scale machine learning. A useful way of thinking about this issue is that it is necessary to use many more...
