Abstract
Data is becoming an incredibly driving power in the new digital economy. Both Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have become the key co-players for technique innovation and the primary engine driving the transformation of digital economy. This talk will first present an overview on the framework of emerging discipline of data science, as driven by the big data and AI particularly the machine learning and deep learning. Although we have seen the boom of artificial intelligence and big data during recent years, industries still struggle to transfer their data from operational systems to analytical systems, thus have difficulty to catch the opportunities in digital economy. In this talk, Prof Peng will discuss the skill gap in the new digital economy, followed by a presentation of an ecosystem where machine learning empowers the big data analytics and big data drives the AI revolution. He will also explore the development of a new data intelligence platform (DIP) to enable the next generation of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and discuss the increasing demand of training and education of talents in data science and analytics.
