Data is everywhere. Whether its automation or algorithms, data is the essential ingredient to such innovations. And there is a lot of it: IDC estimates that there will be 163 Zettabytes of data by 2025. Why? Trends like the Internet of Things (IoT) promise to deliver 79.4 zettabytes (ZB), while each autonomous vehicle is expected to generate 1.26TB of data per hour. In order to thrive in this data tsunami, we need to understand the underlying trends, how data will transform the world we work in and identify unique opportunities to provide value to our stakeholders
Recognize key trends that are causing the data tsunami: understanding the reality of how data is being generated through IoT, autonomous vehicles, mobile ordering, blockchain, etc. Additionally, participants should be able to recognize the link between datafication and automation.
Define key security and privacy implications: Understand how these trends can impact (e.g. increase) security risk and potentially undermine privacy.
Recognize the opportunities and limitations of data analytics: Be able to define how value can be generated from data analytics, identify how data can limit analysis (and conclusions) and recognize how the data itself can be biased. Participants should be able to identify key skills and tools that can be used to perform data analytics
