Conference Report

Mohamed Zaki recently gave a keynote speech at a Rustat Conference on Big Data. 

At the conference a group of experts from academia, government and industry addressed the opportunities and challenges presented by Big Data. The meeting was held with the collaboration of Cambridge Big Data, the University’s Strategic Research Initiative, which brings together researchers from across the University to address challenges presented by the access to unprecedented volumes of data. The initiative's research spans all six Schools of the University, from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to applications ranging from astronomy and bioinformatics, to medicine, social science and the humanities. In parallel the initiative addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply Big Data to solve challenging problems for society. 

The conference discussed a range of ideas and questions: 

  • How to exploit Big Data for useful, actionable knowledge to address practical problems?
  • How Big Data impacts on business and the economy, health, social science research and engineering.
  • Big Data and Industrial Collaboration: case study from KPMG and McLaren Racing
  • Big Data and ethical concerns: questions of ownership and use of data, access,privacy and security. 
  • Big Data Science: how is it making a difference to the way we live and work?

The Conference Report is available here.
