Diebold, F.X. (2012) "A Personal Perspective on the Origin(s) and Development of 'Big Data': The Phenomenon, the Term, and and the Discipline," Manuscript, Department of Economics, University of Pennsylvania.

I investigate Big Data, the phenomenon, the term, and the discipline, with emphasis on origins of the term, in industry and academics, in computer science and statistics/econometrics. Big Data the phenomenon continues unabated, Big Data the term is now firmly entrenched, and Big Data the discipline is emerging.

Diebold, F.X. (2010), "The Known, the Unknown, and the Unknowable in Financial Risk Management" (Introduction to the book of the same title with R.J. Herring and N.J. Doherty).

Statistical issues emerge as central to risk measurement, but economic issues of incentives and strategic behavior emerge as central for risk management, as we illustrate in a variety of contexts.
