Description

Met Office & Alibaba Cloud Present: The True Value of Big Data @ Oxford University

Billions of internet users and connected devices are generating quintillions of data bytes every single day… but so what?

Speakers include Alberto Arribas, Head of UK Informatics Lab at Met Office, Dr Wang Ning, Senior Research Fellow at Oxford University and Data Scientists from Alibaba Cloud.
