APS March Meeting 2018

Industry Day: Big Data and Physics: Bits to Knowledge

This year’s Industry Day theme is “Big Data and Physics: Bits to Knowledge,” which highlights how Big Data impacts our work, our daily lives, and physics research. New applications, services, and products are emerging as Big Data grows in importance. Sensors are proliferating, generating real-time information about the environment, traffic, status of equipment, and what is happening in our homes. Software and systems are being deployed that can digest enormous datasets and extract meaningful insights.

Join your colleagues for exciting talks that will expand your view of Big Data and its impact.

8:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday, March 7
Los Angeles Convention Center

Satellite sessions on Monday March 5, Tuesday, March 6 and Thursday, March 8

Who Should Attend?
Students, early career scientists, and industry people, as well as academics who are interested in what’s happening in industry and Big Data.
