Upcoming Workshop: "Big Data in Science"
Bringing together scientists from Brazil and The Netherlands, as well as other public and private partners, The Graduate School of Medical Sciences Groningen, the Faculty of Economics and Business, and the Faculty of Science and Engineering of the University of Groningen, together with the Research Provost's Office of the Universidade de São Paulo (University of São Paulo) will hold a Big Data Workshop on September 26 and 27 at the Faculdade de Economia, Administração e Contabilidade (FEA-USP).
Theme: “Extracting Science from Big Data”.
The idea is to identify common challenges across the scientific disciplines in the handling, mining, and exploring of Big Data for scientific purposes. The workshop focusses on methodologies for turning raw Big Data into large sets of information and subsequently extracting scientific insights from that. In other words: From Big Data to Big Information to Big Science.
