PROJECT 38: Volume is merely one leg of the data challenge Dyachenko / EyeEm

The statistics alone are daunting on how much data is being created in the world. Babel Street CEO Michael Southworth offers up those figures and what the tech industry's answers are in this episode with our Ross Wilkers.

The U.S. government goes right to the top of the food chain regarding enterprises and the amounts of data they take in and distribute.

Which naturally leads to the problem of data generation outpacing the technology needed to make sense of the volume.

For this episode of Project 38, Babel Street CEO Michael Southworth takes our Ross Wilkers through what dual-use technology companies such as the one he leads are up to in working with agencies on solving that data challenge.

Some of the data volume statistics Southworth cited are overwhelming but illustrate the point of what problems need solving.
