Data Analytics Workshop - October 3, 2017
Rice University, Houston, TX

The Technology Collaboration Center held a Data Analytics Workshop, hosted by Rice University, on October 3, 2017, covering a broad range of cross-industry data analytics topics.

The importance of data analytics is growing exponentially. Learning how to collect, retrieve, analyze, interpret, visualize and make sense of big data will improve efficiency and lead to deep insights, better decisions and associated actions.

This event brought together organizations from a variety of sectors to accelerate shared awareness of the rapidly changing state of the art in data analytics, with presentations on the latest advances and unmet challenges, in a format providing an opportunity for participants to network and explore potential partnerships.

At 4PM, the Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology invited Jeff Dean, Google Senior Fellow, to make a presentation as part of the Institute’s Distinguished Lecture Series.
