In this episode, we go over the bold predictions for 2016 we made just before the start of the year. Find out how right we were, or indeed how bad we are at predicting the future of Big Data. Undeterred, we then happily put on our Nostradamus hats and proceed to make even more new bold predictions for 2017.
