Leveraging Big Data II: What does it mean for Improving Product Development and Healthcare? A Status Report from Industry, Academics and Government
This one-day conference will be held in the Southern Management Corporation Campus Center at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
About the Event:
Since the 1990s, efforts have been made to improve database development and data "warehousing" by pharmaceutical companies and government entities. A recent emphasis has been placed on "big data," the term for a collection of data sets so large and complex that they becomes difficult to process using traditional database management tools or data processing applications. In the world of health-related research, big data takes on many forms with varying applications, but to-date, there is no universal understanding of what big data is or what it can do.
