Getting into... Big Data

Today every aspect of your lives are intrinsically linked to data, from the steps you walk into campus to the assignments you submit online and the food you buy in the supermarket. As tools such as cars, watches and kitchens become digitalised the amount of data we produce will only increase. While machine data has huge value to businesses, there are significant challenges in computing it at real time and presenting it in an accessible manner.
   
This talk will focus on:
   
The value and future of machine/big data
How Artificial Intelligence extends the value of data
Background on how Splunk enables companies to make data-driven decisions
Careers in data from a graduate perspective
