The era of big data is upon us. Any time consumers going about their day – communicating, browsing, buying, sharing, searching – create enormous trails of data. The vastly distributed sensors, GPS in smartphones, connected consumer-electronic devices, even in industrial machinery, power plants, pipelines… generate an entirely new category of data. This wave of big data is likely to reshape how business operates.

Optimizing Big Data to propel business opportunities

How this vastly distributed data is collected? How to extract signal from noise in the sea of data? How to make swift smart decision, in real time?  Semiconductor devices play enabling roles. The big wave of big data provides tremendous opportunity for semiconductor players. We invite leading professionals to give insightful perspectives on this growingly important trend. Please come and join us in this event and take the opportunity to network with industry professionals and entrepreneurs. Looking forward to seeing you at the seminar!
