Intel reveals big data's dirty little secret

Waxman recalled talking with an executive at a financial firm who confided in him about a recent meeting with IBM, which offered its Watson cognitive computing services. The executive found the technology intriguing but expressed concern about using a proprietary service, as well as in handing over data to a company that could be a competitor at some point.

"People want to own their own data. If they give away their data, they don't have much of a company left," Waxman said.
