The volumes of data we collect held by businesses is growing at a phenomenal rate. Organisations are holding ever larger volumes of data in structured and unstructured formats. It is generally accepted that the size of the digital universe will double every two years.
Data science can work with this data to gain a greater understanding than ever before. Even before the term data science entered common usage astronomers have been managing, analysing and visualising large, and often noisy, data sets in their research on a daily basis.
The Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation is now using the expertise developed in their world-leading research to work with business. Come and hear how data tools developed to understand the science of the universe can be applied to real-world business problems.
The workshop will include time for round table discussions considering the challenges and opportunities of large data sets in business.
