"The Morning Briefing" is SmartPlanet's daily roundup of must-reads from the web. This morning we're reading about what Big Data is worth.

1.) Big Data in your blood. Very soon, we will see inside ourselves like never before, with wearable, even internal , sensors that monitor even our most intimate biological processes.

2.) Big Data helps farmers weather drought's damage. In a country that takes for granted its ability to engineer abundance, this summer’s drought sent a searing reminder that sometimes the weather still wins. A dousing of rain from Hurricane Isaac’s tail end was not enough to save withering crops across the Midwest, a calamity that has sent food prices soaring.

3.) Visualizing a new era of CEO data-driven innovation. CEOs have always loved and demanded data. What we're seeing now is a new acceptance of data as the platform for the agile decision making required for innovating.

4.) Big Data Quality: Persistence vs. Disposability. In the structured data world, having a model to work from provides comfort. However, there is an element of comfort and control that has to be given up with big data, and that is our definition and the underlying premise for data quality.

5.) The next wave of Big Data: A Q&A Spotlight with Steve Wooledge of Teradata Aster.
