The amount of digitally recorded information in today’s world is growing exponentially. Massive volumes of user-generated information from smart phones and social media are fueling this Big Data revolution. As data flows throughout every sector of our global economy, questions emerge from commercial, government, and non-profit organizations interested in the vast possibilities of this information. What is Big Data? How does it create value? How can we as digital consumers and producers personally benefit? While Big Data has the potential to transform how we live and work, others see it as an intrusion of their privacy. Data protection concerns aside, the mere task of analyzing and visualizing large, complex, often unstructured data will pose great challenges to future data scientists. We invite you to join us for an exciting discussion on the technological developments and sociological implications of this Big Data revolution.
