What’s Driving Data-Centric Innovation?

An astonishing 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every day—a breakdown of 1.7 megabytes every second. That’s according to the latest DOMO “Data Never Sleeps” survey—an aggregation of venerable sources who’ve tracked the digital trajectory since 2012. To say it’s explosive is an understatement. (And to say it’s going to slow down is ludicrous.) Our reliance on lightning-fast computing drives phenomenal innovation and opportunity, worldwide. And it underscores the need for end-to-end, scalable, reliable, and mature data pipelines from the client to the data center and the cloud. In this trendspotting video, Zia Ma, Intel’s Director of Data Analytics Technologies, connects the strategic dots, including:

  • Latest strategies for deploying high-performing—and connected—big data, analytics, and AI applications
  • How open source solutions are enabling enterprise solutions to take advantage of key technologies and new concepts
  • Top trends impacting the data science (re)evolution

Get the big picture, then dive deeper into essential #DataScience webinars and how-to’s.
