Advanced Analytics: Back to Basics?

In less than a generation, advanced analytics technologies and big data, including machine learning, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and social media, have fundamentally changed the way we work, play and interact with one another. Whether navigating in our cars, making purchases online or acquiring knowledge, we’re hard pressed not to come in contact with – and be influenced by — the algorithms working behind the scenes to understand and predict our behavior.


But with so much automated for us, do we run the risk of losing touch with the fundamental analytical skills necessary to interpret all the information that’s becoming available? This session will explore that question and offer some advice on a few basics that will help you to cope – and thrive – in a world of massive data and virtually unlimited computing power.
