Big (Data, Business, and Ideas)


How does cutting-edge algorithm design enhance our computational efficiency and lead the way to practical solutions? Will “big data” continue to be embraced by people — and robots — for a better society? What “big ideas” are Berkeley’s brightest students developing?

Join dean Kathy Yelick, entrepreneur Felipe Chávez Cortés, and senior program director Phillip Denny for a forward-looking discussion about how our evolving ability to process large amounts of data is shaping the way we work and live — and the big things building in Berkeley.
