The SES Big Data: Innovation in Analysis, Usability and Curation event was held on 18th September 2015. Featuring talks from key researchers at SES institutions and industry, it offered academics the chance to showcase their research in the context of issues in big data.
Whether from the fields of life sciences, Engineering, Chemistry, Astronomy, or the Environment, a few key points were made clear:
- There still remain problems relating to ownership and privacy of Big Data
- Non big-data specialists face difficulties in analysing large volumes of data
- Standards on storing and analysing vary by institution, regionally and nationally.
- Big Data is going to play a huge role in all facets of science and engineering in immediate and further future.
