The real promise of big data isn’t about merely doing analytics cost-effectively and at scale; it’s about discovery. Data discovery means uncovering hidden patterns from disparate sources without needing to know which questions to ask or the data relationships in advance.

In this presentation, you will gain knowledge from a number of diverse use cases: a large cancer research organization is using a systems biology approach to model the growth of cancer cells at the molecular level; a government organization is heightening its security efforts to detect cyber-threats; financial organizations are augmenting their analytics to better measure risk and maximize gains; even a major sports team is optimizing their performance by clustering groups of players based on the similarity of their attributes.

Attend this session to learn more about these examples and how to access unknown insights and important but unpredictable relationships in your own data.
