Media reports showcase that we are in the midst of a Big Data revolution that will impact all of our lives. To date, much of the research around this revolution has focused specifically on Data Science; however, in this roundtable, we will discuss the Data Economy.
The North Carolina Office of Science, Technology and Innovation recently partnered with the National Consortium for Data Science to investigate the Data Economy in North Carolina by determining the current role of data science in the state’s economy; the potential of data science to change the economy; and to what extent Big Data is an actual industry or an enabler of all industries. The roundtable will begin with an overview of the report’s results, and then panelists will answer questions around the role of data science in the economy.
