Big Data, Smart farming, Smart city, Healthcare


In times when everything is online, one thing which is common in every application is the use of data. Data is being generated every second, when applications are generating exponentially larger data sets every second it’s the big data which comes into effect. The major objective of this paper is to state the meaning of big data, figure out various ways as how to digest this data. Further this paper will also focus on the applications of Big Data in multiple segments: Finance, Banking and Securities and  Health Care Sector .
