Caltech Event - Big Data, Big Opportunities: Predicting the Future One Byte at a Time

Big Data Event @ Caltech

Event Abstract:

It’s raining data. Actually, it’s more like a hurricane.

Every website, email, SMS text, mouse click, download and online purchase generates data, a lot of data.

This data is being assembled into massive data sets and used by scientists, researchers, companies and the government to develop new products, predict epidemics, 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 entrepreneurs face in building a Big Data venture.
