The world has now reached a stage in its existence that anything can seem to be possible. At present, no intelligent mind can proudly claim that this is all we got; that this is the final stretch of this technology or invention; that the best product of man’s genius is over. There seems to be no limit to what experts can do. Take for instance the field of data mining.
What started to be an offshoot of statistics and analysis blossoms and have emerged into an independent thing with a life of its own. It is amazing how an innocent part of a whole can become an entity in itself and cause a lot of benefits and influence all other things around it. Web scraping used to be a tiny and unpromising activity that has never been imagined to make business and research gain leaps of advantages and growth. Interestingly, it seems impossible now to think of a life without online research and data collection or simply put, without data mining.
Web scraping is dynamic because it has a life of its own; it keeps growing strong; it continues to branch out, and it is progressing constantly.
A life of its own
At present data mining is an entity in itself. It moves at its own pace and it continues to bring out fruits uniquely of its own kind. It is even amazing that the fruits it produces are sometimes different from what is expected of it. Who can ever imagine that once upon a time it was only one of the tiny shoots of a large expanse of knowledge? Now that it is independently making difference in the world, it is also making way for other fields of knowledge to grow and to affect others as well. Data mining has affected almost all important areas of life such as business, research, medicine, history, and others. It will not be a surprise if one day all things will be known and predicted because people have learned to dig the precious gems of knowledge in the whole wide field of possibilities through the concepts popularized by data mining.
