1. Big data: Tesla to use Hadoop to get more from connected cars
Tesla will use a Hadoop cluster when it begins to collect more of its connected car data, CIO Jay Vijayan said at Gartner Symposium in Barcelona.
The electric carmaker, which produces the most connected car in the market - the Tesla S, currently collects data from its cars purely for research and development for car maintenance. This allows IT, engineers and the manufacturing lines to resolve issues and send back fixes with its over-the-air software updates.
But as its big data increases, it will use the cluster to learn more about its customers, influencing business decisions.
