A few times in this book, we have introduced chapters by reflecting on how much technology has changed over the past few years and how that has shaped our understanding of concepts like security, information channels, mobility, and social exchange. But possibly one of the most groundbreaking advances in recent years is related to how we understand, analyze, and process large subsets of information. The advances in processing power have set the perfect stage for giant amounts of information to be generated. Regrettably, in the early days, this information generally was not compatible or accessible; and when it was, the computational needs required to work with it were out of reach for most individuals and entities.
