Additional Information:

Big data seems like you hear the phrase everywhere but what does it REALLY mean? The term describes a large volume of data, but it is what can be done with all that data that is truly exciting. From information on minute-by-minute residential water use to block-by block gas usage to real-time traffic loads, data can be analyzed for insights that can lead to better and more effective - decisions, behaviors and actions. Representatives from the Rutgers Discovery Informatics Institute home of the largest supercomputer in New Jersey will discuss the use of advanced computation to current address real life challenges in science, engineering, and industry. Real world case studies and applications from New Jersey and beyond will round out the program
