Stage 4 / Open Stage
long talk (60 min)

Session abstract: 

Family is important.  Work is important.  Data is important.  We are constantly inundated with messages telling us what is important, but how do we really determine what is important?  Focusing on the work and data sides of this challenge, we’ll explore technologies and approaches that can help us better understand what is important as well as some key challenges to be tackled in this realm.  We’ll also look at how the combination of larger data sets, faster computing and new ways of thinking can help us unlock what really matters, making us more effective as developers, creators and consumers.
