Greetings & Invite:
Is big data turning out to be mostly big hype?


Two years ago the media was full of reports on how big data was going to change most businesses. Today there is little or no discussion of the issue; media attention is now focused on the "big promise" of Artificial Intelligence.
Was talk of missing out on use of big data just another hype by consultants to sell their services? What are the major changes taking place in businesses due to the availability & analysis of massive amounts of online & offline data? Where are the business opportunities & jobs?
These issues will be discussed by:
