Annual Big Data Conference and Workshop
The annual Big Data Conference & Workshop is a two-day event. Now in its third year, the next session will be held on Thursday and Friday, December 6 & 7, 2018. Mark your calendar! CCS invites you to network with the south Florida private- and public-sector, health care providers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, educators, and researchers to hear panel discussions with industry leaders on the latest Big Data trends and tools.
Day 1 | The Day 1 Big Data Conference is a free, half-day presentation in the afternoon that is followed by a networking reception.
Day 2 | The Day 2 Big Data Workshop dives deeper into the topics explored in Day 1, specifically on building data science competence at your organization. This is a paid, half-day morning session workshop that begins with a full breakfast and ends at lunch time. Day 2 is interactive, with examples of the possible compositions of data-scientist teams driven by the types of problems that you are looking to solve; an examination on the processes that the data need to go through from database to insight; an examination of the infrastructure needs both in terms of storage and computing power, caveats, and limitations of data analyses; and more. Participants will have the opportunity to bring in their own problem as a test case, and to apply the concepts discussed in the workshop by designing a pipeline for analysis to address it. Participation is limited.
The Big Data Conference & Workshop takes place at the beautiful University of Miami Newman Alumni Center.
