Big Data: Today’s Supernova of Information and Opportunity

Big Data has exploded and engulfed us all and has led to a technology and business revolution.  Every website, email, SMS text, mouse click, download, Internet of Things (IoT), sensors and online purchase generates data, a lot of data. This data is being assembled into massive data sets and used by scientists, researchers, business and the government to develop new products, predict epidemics, calculate risk, understand consumer behavior and formulate public policies. Entrepreneurs are pursuing these Big Data opportunities in what is becoming the 21st  century equivalent of the gold rush.

Our speakers will share their views on the opportunities and challenges science and entrepreneurs face in building Big Data ventures, and give a clearer view of what’s coming our way.
