About the talk:
In the first part of this talk, I will review how Big Data is enabling a data-driven economy, look at what to do with Big Data, and look at the consequences of a society being reshaped by systematically building on data analytics. In the second part of the talk, I will outline some of the Big Data research challenges in three areas: Data, Processes, and Management. I will then conclude making a case for Big Data for Social Good: my aim is to show that Big Data can be leveraged to better serve the people who generate the data, and ultimately the society in which we live.
