What is Big Data?
Imagine the data stored in your computer, the data stored in your company’s servers, the data stored in the servers of every branch of your company.
Now, allow that to multiply.
With such massive data in your hands, you have the power to derive patterns, and analyze and make predictions. Such is the very basic crux of what big data, and the Data Science Summit are built on.
The Data Science Foundation and NASSCOM are going to organize the second international Data Science Summit, on the 28th of August in Kolkata.
