Virtual Reality in Data Science & Analytics

XR Immersive Technology will change the way we look, feel, act, think, and live. XR is Virtual reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality. Think Oculus, Microsoft HoloLens and so on. Now what if Virtual and Augmented Reality was integrated with Machine Learning, Data science & Analytics ? Tableau in Virtual Reality ? Spark ML in Augmented Reality ? Imagine that.

VR has empowered gamers to be immersed in an actual virtual universe where they participate, visit, explore, and play. Now VR or AR in marketing, filters, masks, and barcodes can lead people to explore and interact with new products and services.

We are living in an interesting time. Covid-19. Quarantine. WOrld-wide protests to improve the lives of everybody. Immersive Intelligeeent and Creative Information technology is changing basically every part of our society: how we work, play, learn and talk. The pace of the change is remarkable with the significant changes occurring on the size of years instead of decades or hundreds of years.

Another major result of this unrest is an exponential growth of data rates and data volumes, mirroring Moore’s law that depicts the rapidly evolving technology that produces the data. Just as significant is the growth of information quality and data multifaceted nature.

Before IoT and analytics tools, data fit pleasantly on a spreadsheet and KPI dashboard. Big Data, hadoop, Spark, the Cloud, mobile apps, digital transformation and more pushed that level activity from just reading the data and trying to make gut decisions with minimal analytics to a more programmatic statistical process left in the hands of data scientists who apply models to remove helpful insights from large data sets.

Humans have always wanted to predict the future. We still look to Nostradamus and the Mayans and religious texts to predict the future. Imagine a future where we can visualize huge data sets that show not tell significant patterns and trends and recommendations and simulations. Consider the possibility that you would associate with the information, move it around, truly stroll around it. Mixed Reality Data Science Proactive Analytics is the future.

Mixed Reality 3D visualizations are the future that will guide and assist decision-makers comprehend and gather insights from big data sets. The innovation will open the intensity of big data and advanced analtyics in realms as unique as health & medicine, manufacturing, public safety, retail, agriculture, board rooms, and governments, and it could push the adoption of enterprise AR/VR.

It’s been proven that when we are completely submerged in such a immersive data space, taking a look at the data from the back to front as opposed to from the outside glancing in, just like the case in all traditional visualization approaches, pushes boundaries and limits. The Show not tell theory of Data science, Analytics, and more. We are visitors and actors, not just viewers. Our brains are best if we are looking for patterns in such a space regardless of whether space itself is abstract in nature.

Virtual Reality is a characteristic platform for collaborative community data visualization, analysis, story telling and story living and visual exploration. Visitors and Actors can interface with the data and with one another in a common virtual space regardless of whether they are in San Diego, Atlanta, Hong Kong, or Auckland or on Mars in the physical world. Such connections are incomprehensibly better than any remotely coordinating experience. Virtual is the new physical. Simply saving time, cost, and effort of travel is a great advantage in and of itself.

Sorting big unstructured data is essential. Self-service Business Intelligence and Analytics has been touted for years, but with Virtual Reality Data Science Visualizations, it is the ultimate self-service immersive technology for business. Conventional visual diagrams and pie outlines on tablets, laptops, mobile phones are basically 2D screens with sever limitations. The Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence Dimensional Modeling slicing and dicing and pivot tables in tableau or excel or power BI are still 2D. No matter how we slice and dice the data, it’s on a flat 2d Screen. Graphs and maps and animation have improved upon this limitation,, but it’s still really a flat 2D world. You’re not immersed in the simulation.

VR and AR provide this Visitor and Actor Simulated world where information actually comes alive, the story is alive, and the simulations you may want to run, you can interact, create, change, and participate, not just watch on a small mobile phone. Imagine Big data visualization interactive experiences where the information and data and simulation models encompass you. That’s immersive. That’s the future.

Smart mapping with better mapbox, openstreetmap and google maps integrations. Intelligent smart contracts and automation for physical manufacturing or retail, machine learning and natural language processing to find significant patterns and conversation semantics and show it all in the virtual realm, which would also be personalized and customized by visitors and actors. Mixed Reality doesn’t have users. It has Visitors and Actors.

VR and AR with big data and data science will improve the slow arduous data integration and processing and transformation challenges. Extreme Analytics on steroids in an immersive realm.

Pagarba Solutions combines artificial intelligence, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, blockchain, gamification and Big data(Spark like tools and the cloud) to make solutions which permits visitors to analyze up to 10 elements of immersed sliced data.
