Nobel Conference 57: Big Data Revolution
October 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until October 6th, 2021
How is big data changing our lives, and what challenges and opportunities does this transformation present? In less than a generation, we’ve witnessed nearly every piece of personal, scientific, and societal data come to be stored digitally. Check out the full schedule here.
The stored information is both an intellectual and an economic commodity; it is used by businesses, governments, academics, and entrepreneurs. The velocity with which it accumulates and the techniques for leveraging it grow at a pace that is remarkable and often intimidating. But this revolution also promises hope, in areas as diverse as public health, drug development, child welfare, and climate change.
The 2021 Nobel Conference will be held virtually, due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. There is no cost to watch the conference, which will be streamed live and archived on this page. You do not need to pre-register to watch.
