 English term or phrase: calculus of data 副标题中出现了calculus： Tim O'Reilly on the ***calculus*** of data, predictive analytics, and why mobile sensors are central to his thinking about the future. 正文中出现了： The contacts battle between Google and Facebook is an early example of the new ***calculus*** of data. I don't know why Google didn't stand up sooner and say, "If you're scraping our data to fill out your network, why can't we do the same in reverse?" That's a really good question. It's one thing if Facebook wants to keep their data private. But it's another thing if they take from the "data commons" and don't give anything back. 感觉很不好处理 文章来源： http://radar.oreilly.com/2010/12/2011-data.html

Explanation:
calculus of data = data mining technique = 数据挖掘方法
predictive analytics = 预测分析方法

Calculus is used in data mining. Besides, data mining and predictive analytics are related to each other.

You can also look at the main body of your source text. Facebook is scraping (mining) Google's user data.

If you've learnt Advanced Mathematics, Calculus is the branch that involves differentiation and integration.

Whatever it is, calculus of data = data mining technique. Translate as you deem fit.

Hope this helps.
