These are just some of the data drivers behind the monumental leaps being made in blockchain, fintech, augmented reality, and quantum computing—as we are in continual, chronic need of containing, processing, presenting and securing all this data.

So where is this age of big data taking us? Well, first, let’s realize that we’re not just along for the ride. Our digital expectations, as much as data itself, are also shaping the future. After all, we live in a 24/7 connected world of instant gratification—instant digital sales transactions, real-time marketing feedback and refinement, cloud-based millisecond transfer of stored data and artifacts. We demand a certain level of service, and the industry delivers. Plus, all these rapid transactions produce and compile data at an equally speedy rate as well. We are literally inundated with data.

Putting this data to good (and secure, and ethical) use is now the big challenge, and sectors that are ripe for transformation include, deep data intelligence; artificial intelligence; data storage, processing and retrieval; data security; augmented reality; autonomous machines; and machine learning.

The work taking place now will have far-reaching implications. Join us and 4,000+ creative and curious minds as we learn from the researchers and innovators working on the many frontlines of big data transformation. Inventures 2020 explores this and other timely, thought-provoking topics in an unforgettable three-day experience in Calgary June 3-5, 2020.
