Stanford EE Computer Systems Colloquium

4:15PM, Wednesday, October 29, 2014

NEC Auditorium, Gates Computer Science Building Room B3


In the first part of this talk, I  will review how Big Data is enabling a data-driven economy, look at what to do with Big Data, and look at the consequences  of a society being reshaped by “systematically building on data analytics”. In the second part of the talk, I will outline some of the Big Data research challenges in three areas: Data, Processes, and Management. I will then conclude making a case for Big Data for Social Good: my aim is to show that Big Data can be leveraged to better serve the people who generate the data, and ultimately the society in which we live.
