Big Data & Artificial Intelligence Conference

Big Data & Artificial Intelligence Conference

Petroleum has always been the driver of the world economy and whoever controlled it had the keys to the world. But Big data maybe about to change that. Big data could be the next petroleum.


The race for big data has corresponded with a spike in the demand for data collection and information management specialists so much so that software giants like Software AG, Oracle, IBM, Microsoft, SAP, EMC, HPand Dell have spent more than $15 billion on software firms specialising in data management and analytics. In 2010, the big data market was worth more than $100 billion and was growing at almost 10 percent a year, about twice as fast as the software business as a whole. This is the age of creative big data disruption.


Governments and corporate organisations can use big data’s
adoption of predictive analytics, user behaviour analytics and
other advanced data analytics to spot business trends, prevent diseases, combat crime, among other operations.


The applications of big data in governance in business operations was one of the reasons why the Big Data and Artificial Intelligence Conference was organised. Set to run on the 30th and 31st of July 2020 at the Emperors Palace Convention Centre in Johannesburg, the event will discuss how scientists, business executives, medical practitioners, advertising and governments can apply data analytics in areas including manufacturing, mining, financial technology, smart city and urban informatics, governance, meteorology, biology and environmental research.
