Big Data and Data Science Challenges


We live in a sea of data! Large, complex, structured, unstructured, heterogeneous data is being generated and stored in various shapes, forms, and locations. The volume, variety, and velocity in which the data expands gives rise to numerous challenges in how the data is captured, stored, visualized, analyzed, and processed to extract valuable, actionable insights to influence the decision making process. In this talk, we will explore the opportunities and challenges of big data and data science, their impact across many sectors, and how they may shape new, inter-disciplinary research agendas to address them.
