The arrival of Big Data, in combination with the rise of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, has encouraged some analysts to announce the termination of theory, and the end of the traditional scientific method. By implication, that would be the end of epidemiology as we know it. In the Petabyte era, we are now able to analyze the data without hypotheses about what it might show.
