Traditional databases are great for handling structured data, such as information that can easily be captured and categorized in a table. However, unstructured data, accounting for around 80% of the world's data, is not so easily managed. Many companies are struggling with making sense of the massive scale of data they have. In the big data era, how can we tackle the conundrum of meaningful data analysis?
In the new episode of That Digital Show, Frank Liu, AI Tech Lead at Zilliz, explains how AI and machine learning are making it possible for developers to understand and extract more value from unstructured data. This episode is hosted by Jay Jenkins, Tech Strategist and Evangelist at JAPAC - Google Cloud, and Theo Davies, Head of Cloud Sales Enablement at JAPAC - Google Cloud.
Below are some questions discussed in the conversation and their corresponding timestamps. To hear the answers, listen to the whole episode titled "Using Al to Supercharge Data-Driven Applications with Zilliz".
