Big Data Knowledge Cafe

Dear colleagues and friends,
Studium Generale, in collaboration with Target and the Infoversum, will hold their next Knowledge Cafe on the largely popular, but still vaguely understood topic of Big Data. Big Data has been dubbed "the new oil", compared to "teenage sex" and equated to "big insight". But beyond the world of buzzwords and creative metaphors, what is the promise of Big Data for science, technology, business and governance. We invite all of you on Thursday, September 25 at 17:00 at the Infoversum to join in the discussion with a panel of three experts, each bringing a different perspective and message. Admission is free and the language is Dutch. For more information, click here.
