Too Long; Didn't Read

Every day there is about three quintillion (the next step up is sextillion or one zettabyte) bytes of data created and only about 20% of it is structured and available to easily process. Pilosa is an open source bitmap indexing project that is now maintained by Molecula, the same people that originally developed it while at Umbel and have gone through some organizational changes. The software can store a knowledge representation of underlying data in memory, making it orders of magnitude smaller and unimaginably fast.
