Three Panel Table Saw Formatting That Respects Human And Machine

2 min read


The need for more processing power is a well-known and documented phenomenon. But in the context of data science, this is not just about adding more cores to your computer or getting a faster processor. It’s also about sorting and heuristics—ways to decipher the data quickly so that we can get down to business. In this article, I will explore three ways in which we can take advantage of Big Data: format optimization for human-machine interaction; speed and efficiency; and sorting and heuristics.

The need for more processing power

The need for more processing power

As the amount of data continues to increase, so does the need for processing power. The reason is simple: if you want to run your business efficiently, you need to be able to process all that information quickly and accurately. If you can’t do that using existing hardware and software solutions, then it’s time to upgrade! The good news is that there are some great new tools on the market today–tools that will help you make sense out of all those numbers so you can act quickly when opportunities present themselves (and avoid mistakes).

Sorting and heuristics

  • Sorting and heuristics are key to being able to process large amounts of data.
  • Sorting is used to organize data in a way that makes it easier to process.
  • Heuristics are used to identify patterns in data and make predictions based on the data.

Speed and efficiency

Speed and efficiency are two different things. Speed is how fast you can complete a task, while efficiency is the ratio of output to input. For example, if it takes you 10 minutes to cut through a 2×4 with a table saw and then another 20 minutes to clean up all of the leftover wood shavings from your work area, that’s not very efficient at all!

However, if your table saw has an adjustable blade guard (which makes it safer) and an easy-to-use rip fence (which helps ensure accuracy), then perhaps what was once considered “slow” might now be considered “fast.”

As the amount of data grows, the need for more processing power increases.

As the amount of data grows, the need for more processing power increases. More processing power is needed to sort and heuristically process the large amounts of data generated by Big Data sources like social media and IoT sensors.

In order to meet this growing demand, companies are turning to cloud-based solutions that can help them process their data quickly and efficiently.


As we have seen, there are many challenges facing the data scientist of today. The amount of data available is growing exponentially, and it’s up to us to make sense of it all. In order to do so, we need better tools that can handle this exponential growth in size and complexity while maintaining an acceptable level of performance.
