Because of the assumed uniqueness, often the hash value is used as an identifier of the long piece of data. That’s not generally true of course, you can’t shrink a book to one word, and hope that no other book will shrink to that same word. But, if you want to compare two books and their corresponding “hash words” are different, you can be absolutely sure that the books are different as well. If the hash values are the same, we call it a collision. In cryptographic applications the collisions may be a bad thing, while in other scenarios, they are merely a nuisance (depends on how you choose to decide if two things are the same or not).
