Big data – seems like you hear the phrase everywhere but what does it REALLY mean? The term describes a large volume of data, but it is what can be done with all that data that is truly exciting. From information on minute-by-minute residential water use to block-by block gas usage to real-time traffic loads, data can be analyzed for insights that can lead to better – and more effective - decisions, behaviors, and actions. Representatives from Rutgers and industry discuss the use of advanced computation to address real life challenges in science, engineering, and industry. Real world case studies and applications – from New Jersey and beyond – will round out the program.

This half-day program has been developed in response to the BIG questions on BIG data. Come and learn the basics – and the exciting applications that await in the future!
