Abstract : Analysis of data by humans can be a time-consuming activity and thus use of sophisticated cognitive systems can be utilized to crunch this enormous amount of data. Cognitive computing can be utilized to reduce the shortcomings of the concerns faced during big data analytics.

The characteristics of cognitive computing, namely observation, interpretation, evaluation and decision were mapped to the five V’s of big data namely volume, variety, veracity, velocity and value. Perspectives which touch all these parameters are yet to be widely explored in existing literature.
