The history of data analytics has been marked by an environment of scarcity. Resources were few and costly, so risk had to be minimized. The widespread adoption of cloud technology has radically shifted that balance by offering readily available compute, storage, and tools at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems.

Tom Grey explains why we are on the cusp of a golden age of analytics and machine learning—a golden era that will have far reaching implications, not just for how we think about data but for the very nature of how we approach business and the people we employ to do it.

This keynote is sponsored by Google Cloud.
