Motion of the Ocean

Is it the size of the boat or the motion of the ocean? Vooza’s Data Analyst runs the numbers.

>> So everyone's buzzing about big data these days.
But I like to say, it's not the size of your data, it's how you use it.
[LAUGH]. You know, it's like not the size of the boat,
it's the motion of the ocean.
Though from a data perspective, I wonder if that's true about the boat.
Size of the boat.
Motion of the ocean.
All right.
If you look at the wave characteristics in ocean data, and
combine that with the saline percentage of the waves, and
factor in the distributions of wave period and amplitude.
You'll see that the square footage of the boat actually counts for
at least 60% of the drag coefficient.
But granted, that is for data using measurements of a sea state in deep and
shallow water at different geographical locations.
Let's simplify it.
Let's run the numbers again using shallow water measurements in
the Indian ocean.
Oh, there we have it.
The result is a clear, measurable, quantitative outcome.
Well, as you can see, the motion of the ocean is
actually 25% more important than the size of the boat.
>> And you're sure.
See, I [SOUND] told her.
