Big Data and You

February 18, 2016

This spring, SFU is embarking on a university-wide Big Data initiative. We are asking the SFU community to share your ideas, tell us your needs, and help us strengthen our activities in this field.

Next week, a Town Hall will be held to discuss the opportunities that Big Data presents for SFU. We want to know: How can Big Data enhance your university experience? How can we leverage our computing resources to best support student start-ups? How can SFU help you develop Big Data skills to prepare you for the next step in your career?

Join us at:

SFU’s Big Data Initiative Town Hall
Tuesday, February 23, 2016
12:00 pm-1:00 pm
IRMACS Presentation Studio (ASB 10900)
Webcast: Live@IRMACS 

You can also tweet @SFUResearch using #BigData, or send your ideas to . We look forward to engaging with you further as we work together to envision, and unlock, the potential of Big Data for SFU’s future.

The preceding message sent on behalf the SFU Executive.
