Figure 2 : Parallels between the growth in size and decay in value of large heterogeneous datasets.

The horizontal axis represents time, whereas the vertical axis shows the value of data. As we acquire more data at an ever faster rate, its size and value exponentially increase (black curve). The color curves indicate the exponential decay of the value of data from the point of its fixation (becoming static).
