Big Data only seems to be getting bigger and bigger, both in terms of its application and the sheer amount of data we can process. While IBM’s Watson and Google’s self-driving car are among the most advanced big data applications we see, big data is also disrupting more traditional industries such as education with the rise of MOOCs, and healthcare with the advent of Genomics and personalized medicine.

At the Big Data track at TiEcon 2014, we expect to deliver a bigger and better version of what we brought you in 2013, whether you are a technologist, entrepreneur, businessperson, researcher, experienced Big Data veteran or a newbie.

Key topics of discussion:

  • How big the big data market is and how anyone can generate value from it
  • Where services fall in the big data landscape
  • Emerging technologies and applications of big data across industries
  • Security, privacy and personalization - 2 sides of the same coin?
  • How big data could hurt or help in a world riddled with "big brother" behaviors and the consumer Internet of Things
