We are in an age of increasing data volumes, with the ability to measure and store data on a scale never before seen. Across all areas of research, new approaches in collection, processing, storage and analysis, are required in order to derive new knowledge and deliver benefits from our unprecedented access to information.
This afternoon symposium will officially launch the Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative. Four speakers from across Cambridge, in fields from astronomy to the social sciences, will present their work and, in a panel discussion, identify the key challenges that define the Big Data revolution. A drinks reception will follow.
31st October 2014 – 13:30-18:00, Sainsbury Laboratory, 47 Bateman Street, Cambridge.
