The Data Visionaries Series

September 13, 2017 - 12:30 to December 6, 2017 - 1:30pm SFU's Big Data Hub, Presentation Studio, ASB 10900

Data visionaries are the pioneers. They are on the leading-edge, discovering new ways to transform vast and complex data into stories, solutions and knowledge that will shape and reshape our world. Join us this fall for a series of conversations with data visionaries from SFU and beyond as we explore and critically examine the possibilities and real world impact of data in our future.
