Daniela Rus“Through our partnerships with our key industrial stakeholders, we understand that Big Data is the next frontier to tackle as we create technology to better understand and improve the world around us. Thanks to our dedication to developing the technologies of the future, conducting fundamental, long-term research in computer science and information technology, solving significant societal problems, and inspiring the future workforce of innovators and big thinkers, we can provide a one-of-a-kind learning experience for participants looking to learn about the tools and skills they need to solve their Big Data problems.”



Sam Madden, Professor, Electrical Engineering Computer Systems

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.”
