1 The Business Side of Big Data The world s first conference to focus on how Big Data is improving the productivity of business and government. Smart Cities Health Productivity Everything October Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada Plenary Speaker: Ray Kurzweil, world-renowned futurist
2 A Business Focused Big Data Conference Focusing on the Business Side of Big Data Almost all Big Data conferences to date have focused heavily on the technologies that enable Big Data to work. This conference takes a different approach, We are focused on the business end of Big Data; how it can be applied to business and government to make a difference. It s What Senior Leaders Want and Need In both industry and government, executive and senior management outside the technology sphere have been seeking a way to understand what Big Data is and how it can be applied to improve productivity. Why Big Data for Productivity? Our anticipated delegates are primarily senior decision and policy makers. This conference is about making Big Data work, not the underlying technology. Big Data can provide critical new insights into issues and opportunities that can affect productivity in manufacturing, marketing, healthcare, government services and more. Insights that increase profitability, manage cost or avoid costly decisions.
3 A Truly Global Big Data Event The Big Data for Productivity Congress is truly a global meeting of minds. Through our partnership with the World Confederation of Productivity Science and with Atlantic Canada a recognized global centre of excellence for Big Data, attendees in industry and government leadership roles from around the world will be attending. It may well be that this is the largest international conference on the business side of Big Data in the world.
4 Plenary Speaker Futurist - Ray Kurzweil Ray Kurzweil is one of the world s leading inventors, thinkers, and futurists, with a thirty-year track record of accurate predictions. Called the restless genius by The Wall Street Journal and the ultimate thinking machine by Forbes magazine, Kurzweil was selected as one of the top entrepreneurs by Inc. magazine, which described him as the rightful heir to Thomas Edison. PBS selected him as one of the sixteen revolutionaries who made America. Kurzweil was the principal inventor of the first CCD flat-bed scanner, the first omni-font optical character recognition, the first print-to-speech reading machine for the blind, the first text-to-speech synthesizer, the first music synthesizer capable of recreating the grand piano and other orchestral instruments, and the first commercially marketed large-vocabulary speech recognition. Among Kurzweil s many honours, he recently received the 2015 Technical Grammy Award for outstanding achievements in the field of music technology; he is the recipient of the National Medal of Technology, was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame, holds twenty honorary Doctorates, and honours from three U.S. presidents. Ray has written five national best-selling books, including New York Times bestsellers The Singularity Is Near (2005) and How To Create A Mind (2012). He is a Director of Engineering at Google heading up a team developing machine intelligence and natural language understanding.
