Can We Ever Escape from Data Overload ?

  title={Can We Ever Escape from Data Overload ?},
  author={David D. Woods and Emily S. Patterson},
Data overload is a generic and tremendously difficult problem. We examine three different characterizations that have been offered to capture the nature of the data overload problem and how they lead to different proposed solutions. The first characterization is a clutter problem where there is “too much stuff,” which leads to proposals to reduce the number of data bits that are displayed. The second characterization is a workload bottleneck where there is too much data to analyze in the time… CONTINUE READING
