Exponential expansion of data has significantly contributed to notable changes in business and academic environments. Data has been growing in both volume and diversity. Numerous organizations have been actively involved in generation, collection and utilization of data. Rich data has become the new treasure throw for extraction of actionable knowledge. However, the scale and growth of data considerably outpace technological capacities of organizations to properly process and manage it. An increasing gap between the data expansion and technological means to cope with it presents new challenges. Data Science has emerged as an interdisciplinary endeavor to tackle data related challenges. Recent developments highlight the pressing need for closer alignment between academia and businesses. We shall explore approaches and trends at the intersection of academic and commercial interests in data science.
Dr. Peter Geczy holds a senior position at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). His recent research interests are in information technology intelligence. This multidisciplinary research encompasses development and exploration of future and cutting-edge information technologies. It also examines their impacts on societies, organizations and individuals. Such interdisciplinary scientific interests have led him across domains of technology management and innovation, data science, service science, knowledge management, business intelligence, computational intelligence, and social intelligence. Dr. Geczy received several awards in recognition of his accomplishments.
