COM.BigData 2014:
The 1st International Summit on Big Data Computing


Big Data is now invading in every aspect of our daily life and promise to revolutionize our life. It is “the next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity” as said McKinsey Global Institute.

Big data provides an opportunity to find insight in new and emerging types of data. How will you take advantage of this opportunity? Big Data also presents a number of challenges relating to its complexity, heterogeneity, and immense. Many of these novel challenges necessitate rethinking various aspects of information processing philosophy, data management platforms, and data computing methodologies in science, engineering, medicine, and business.

We believe that appropriate investment in Big Data will not only lead to a new wave of fundamental technological advances that will be embodied in the next generations of Big Data management platforms, systems, and products, but also has the potential to create huge economic value in the world economy for years to come.

COM.BigData 2014 is the 1st International Summits on Big Data Computing on Aug. 4-6, 2014 in Washington DC and online COM.* Virtual Conference (COM.* VC) in conjunction with COM.Geo 2014 and COM.DriverlessCar 2014 Summits.
