University presents research into how Big Data can benefit businesses

The University of Brighton is holding its second Research Insights seminar for businesses. ‘Big Data! Big Deal?’ will explore how a little intelligence can create a paradigm shift in businesses of all sizes.

The seminar, to be held on Tuesday 29th April at the Arora Hotel in Crawley, is for businesses that want to make better sense of their data. It explores what big data actually is, looks at how research carried out 10 years ago is now being applied, and considers how the next 10 years will look.

Research and industry experts will address these questions using case studies from real industry problems and years of academic research to reveal how data doesn’t have to be big to be powerful while also considering new real and imagined risks and their implications for data security.  

Professor Miltos Petridis will offer an overview of the challenges and opportunities involved in extracting “real” value from large scale, complex data available in industry and business. Showing how artificial intelligence techniques have matured so that they can be deployed reliably in a number of ways within today’s enterprise.

Professor Haris Mouratidis will present research carried out at the University of Brighton, to develop new methodologies and tools that support the secure-by-design approach.

Sam Zindel and Dr Peter Passaro will explore how businesses relate to each other, the city, and the world in real time in their presentation ‘How do you model a digital city?’ They will consider what 'city data' tells us about the people, systems and environment around us, what data sources can be used to model a city and how can we use that data to inform policy, improve services, increase city wide income and encourage inward investment. They will also discuss pioneering open data projects from around the UK including in Oxford and Aberdeen and discuss a vision and a project to build a city-wide data platform in Brighton.

As we hurtle towards a data driven, faster than light digital age, this seminar will invite us to pause to consider the hype, and the reality, of big data and what it will mean for large, medium, and small business over the coming years.
