Evolving Panorama of Data
Track: Applied Data ScienceLocation:Grand Ballroom - Salon A/BAbstract:
Data is accumulating rapidly. Our approaches to capturing and analyzing data, as well as in making connections between and drawing conclusions from this data are evolving as well. In this talk, we'll review some of the changes in how data is used and analyzed, including new technology approaches. We then highlight several examples of the power of data analysis outside of the usual suspects: customer needs, production dashboards, etc. We'll look at how data is used to track election violence, movement of people after a natural disaster, and attempts to predict famine and other humanitarian crises before they happen.
