Hi Folks,

Apparently "data science" is the hot buzzword these days:

Data Scientist: The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century
(http://hbr.org/2012/10/data-scientist-the-sexiest-job-of-the-21st-century/)

I think that, in a nutshell, data science is about analyzing large amounts of
data.

It seems that most people believe that the Hadoop, parallel processing
paradigm is the sole way of doing data science/data analytics.

However, I think that streaming is an equally valuable approach.

XSLT streaming is all about processing large amounts of (XML-formatted) data.

So XSLT streaming should fit in the "data science" and "data analytics"
categories.

Broad Question: Would you provide a scenario/example of doing data
science/data analytics using XSLT streaming please?

I realize that the question is rather vague and broad. I am hoping we can
collectively come up with ideas on how to do data analytics (data science)
using XSLT streaming. Any ideas you might have would be appreciated.

/Roger
