A201 - Big Data10:30 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.
Big Data is still Big, especially as a topic in the media, and data scientist landed the top spot on Glassdoor’s “Best Jobs in America” for 2016. We know that data is being compiled at the speed of light, but it can be hard to see how any of it is actually applicable to organization problem-solving and strategy. Moving past the hype of fitness trackers and smart appliances, Affelt takes a look at data science projects in industries where collection, processing, and presentation of data have had a dramatic impact—-pharma, open cities municipal initiatives, education, retail, and of course, libraries. She discusses some user-friendly discovery, analysis, and visualization tools that can be used by info pros to glean real insights from all of this data. The sky is the limit as we channel our inner data scientists to discuss our hopes and dreams in a Big Data world.
