Big Data: What Is It and What Might It Mean for Our Future?
Dr. John Ward
"Big data" refers to the large and increasing volume of data available in today's connected/networked world through the Internet of Things (IoT). Big data has tremendous potential to inform decision-making and change the world as we know it, but does this future come with a cost in terms of individual freedom, privacy, and security?
The Smart Cities vernacular has become a prolific phrase in our community over the last year. Join us to consider the various issues raised by the development of wired and integrated cities. We offer a general education course, CPS 103 - Introduction to Smart Cities, which includes and encourages community participation at weekly brown bag lunches. These events are free and open to the public. You do not need to register or sign-up ahead of time--feel free to just show up!
