Are you and your organization taking advantage of the opportunities created by today’s flood of new data?
Do you know about the latest tools for storing, analyzing, and visualizing data? Have you considered the privacy implications of working with data? How do leaders balance intuition and data in making important decisions?
The UC Berkeley School of Information’s DataEDGE conference will bring you up to speed quickly on the current state of the data revolution. You will hear from leading experts in the field about the way organizations are using data to address business and societal issues, about the challenges of working with data at scale, and about the most pressing questions and debates facing data scientists today.
This conference is not just for technologists and math geeks; DataEDGE brings together social scientists, computer scientists, policy-makers, designers, and artists for an intimate two-day conference to assess the current state of data science and the data revolution.
