Xconomy Forum: Big Insight—Making Sense of Big Data in Seattle

It's not about the data, it's about the insight. Entrepreneurs, researchers, and investors in Seattle and the broader Northwest are finding innovative ways to harness the raw data rushing at us from an ever-widening array of sources and put it to profitable, impactful use. Building on Northwest strengths such as cloud computing and enterprise software, startups and established technology giants alike are defining a new regional specialization here with the potential to transform virtually every field of human endeavor. And investors are taking note: some 15 local companies working on some facet of big data have raised more than $80 million in venture capital in the last year alone.

Join Xconomy for a half-day forum on the challenges and opportunities facing the Northwest as it establishes itself as a center for development of next-generation big data platforms and tools and adds to its legacy of data-driven killer apps in everything from real estate to traffic to the electrical grid and the frontiers of scientific research and artificial intelligence. Come ready to learn from and network with Seattle-area business and technology leaders working on new ways to create, gather, manage, analyze, and ultimately draw insight from big data.
