Different Approaches to Big Data

Basel, Switzerland

Please join us at the upcoming Switzerland KnowledgeNet Chapter meeting and examine the concept of Big Data. This presentation will discuss questions such as: What does the term mean in general? What does it mean in practice for the industry? How do different sectors in pharmaceuticals, media and insurance approach Big Data? What are the risks and compliance challenges? How are data privacy aspects implemented in practice?
