Speech Title: Envisioning Big Data
Abstract: The presentation starts by mentioning the amount of data produced in the world and the increasingly quantified enterprise. People analytics and programmed species are covered. The worth and value of big data are analysed. The issues of dark data, data agility and predictive analytics are then presented .The area of computation is addressed by introducing serverless computing and Cloud Based Cognitive Quantum Computing. Important issues related to consumers´ big data, like data deluge, privacy, personal data and data vulnerabilities are dissected next. Data virtualisation and visualisation are then discussed. The new concept of LI-FI, the transmission of data through light is introduced. Algorithms, machine learning deep learning and artificial neural networks are then covered. Finally, the presentation ends by introducing autonomous data machines and the concept of data for good.
