Topic: Data Science for Data-Driven Innovations

The idea of Big Data being associated with substantially increased data volumes, velocity and variety has been discussed for years. This isn’t really that interesting. What is interesting is if we look beneath the surface of the technologies emerging to support the Big Data phenomenon and look at the economic implications of Big Data. We believe that data (and data management systems) have become equally important as Land, Labour and Financial Capital as a fourth necessary factor of production. In this keynote, I will be discussing the rise of data capital and its economic impact on the way we do business today. Then we will dive deeper into the implications and opportunities for organizations that this rise of data capital can bring.
