The field of “big data” has rapidly morphed from visionary hype to economic reality. As more companies and industries try to make sense of ever-expanding worlds of information, a few key sectors are winning mindshare and investment: product design and development in the cloud; connected devices and hardware for health, energy, and social applications; and large-scale infrastructure for data storage, sharing, and analytics. Looming over everything, though, are huge issues of cybersecurity and consumer privacy.
Join Xconomy for a half-day conference that will dive into these areas and much more, with an emphasis on identifying the real opportunities and challenges of the future.
