I would like to know how data generation has evolved through the years.

My end goal would be to generate a logarithmic line plot showing the ridiculous increase in data generation. Please, does someone have a reference for this? I couldn't find any. It's OK if you point me to a book (available on eBay) that has this information.

Thanks!

Edit: when I talk about data generation, I talk about combined information generated by both machines and humans. I know this is not very well defined, but, for example, before the inventions of computers, you can consider books and movies.

You could search on Google Trends all the mentions to generative models. Similarly, you can do something like this on ArXive papers and/or Google Scholar.

  • $\begingroup$ Could you please define what you mean by "data generation" then, especially referred to a time when computers didn't exist? $\endgroup$ – Leevo Sep 9 '19 at 7:20
  • $\begingroup$ Done, although I understand it is still not well defined. $\endgroup$ – Guillermo Mosse Sep 10 '19 at 9:40
