OKC Innovates Symposium: Big Data

Wednesday, October 18 at 1 PM - 6 PM
Embassy Suites by Hilton Oklahoma City Downtown Medical Center
741 N Phillips Ave, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73104

***Limited Number of Seats Available***

The second OKC Innovates Symposium will focus on the capability to analyze and understand the large volume of data being generated by Oklahoma City companies and research institutions.

For those of you who are new to the term “Big Data”, this symposium will provide an exciting way to learn what it’s all about through a wide variety of short talks from local leaders in the field. We’ll step through the five stages of converting data to business and societal value, from acquiring data, to storing and processing it, to interrogating and modeling it, to driving value-added decision making. Each section will feature speakers from across the innovation district and different industries, showing how the challenges of working with data has become something that connects us all.

For those of you who are experienced technologists, the symposium will provide a chance for you to learn more about specific technologies and approaches being leveraged by local organizations, and to understand the specific business problems being addressed. By having each section of talks include discussion of an open challenge as well as current solutions, we aim for the symposium to foster opportunities for collaboration within the community.

Attendees will be given time to engage in table discussions and a lively Q&A with each panel of presenters. A reception will follow the event from 5-6 p.m. $35 per person.
