Data Innovation Day

Data Innovation Day will be held on Thursday, January 24, 2013.

The theme this year is “Big Data. Bigger Opportunities.”

The purpose of Data Innovation Day is to raise awareness about the benefits and opportunities that come from increased use of information by individuals and the public and private sector.

Today we live in an era in which massive amounts of information are collected, analyzed, integrated, and disseminated in novel ways to make the world a better place. The unprecedented volume of data being generated today is transforming virtually every industry, including, health care, transportation, energy and manufacturing. In every sector data analytics are allowing organizations to extract more value from increasingly larger data sets. And every day new advances in computing technology, including faster processors, cheaper storage, lower-cost sensors, better displays, and ubiquitous wireless networks, are unlocking additional opportunities to harness data and create a world that is alive with information. Data Innovation Day is a celebration of the benefits generated by the current revolution in data, and it will give participants around the world the opportunity to showcase the latest innovations in the use of data and the economic value of the information economy.
