Sam Madden “At CSAIL, we think of Big Data as a big opportunity to develop the next generation of technologies to store, manage, analyze, share, and understand the huge quantities of data we are now collecting. Based on interactions with our industry partners, we’ve gained a unique perspective on the issues posed by large amounts of complex, digital data. Through Tackling the Challenges of Big Data, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the most recent research developments from the actual scientists behind the work, and gain key insights into the important new developments that will shape the landscape of data processing in the years to come.”
