We can cite the example of the American actress Angelina Jolie who successively in May 2013 underwent a double mastectomy, then in March 2015 ovary and fallopian tube removal, having learned, after genome sequencing, that she was carrying a mutation in the gene BRCA1, leading to a risk of greater than 90% of developing a cancer in the following ten years. In Texas, the business Seton Healthcare Family put in place a predictive analytical algorithm so as to limit the risks of patient re-hospitalization.

In the past, business data was seen as a management activity by‐product, analyzed by “Data Mining” teams whose influence within the business was, as a consequence, reduced. Nowadays, we are at the beginning of an era where all professional and personal services and activities for individuals are becoming digitized. The attitudes of company directors are changing regarding recognized data as a significant innovation lever, which is likely to cause both new economic models and significant productivity gains.

Nowadays, the health sector is confronted with an important transformation, fed by the explosion of knowledge in biomedical sciences, biomechanical sciences, nanotechnology, in the field of the so-called “cyborgization”9, in hospitals, and by the standardization of some technologies such as human genome sequencing. Henceforth, health data produced, collected and stored during the course of a patient’s treatment are literally massive. These Big Data power the medical datasphere. Coupled with progress, achieved in ICT10, this evolution around these large volumes of data looks likely to become a revolution.
