Description

Data visionaries are the pioneers. They are on the leading-edge, discovering new ways to transform vast and complex data into stories, solutions, and knowledge that will shape and reshape our world. Join us this fall for a series of conversations with data visionaries from SFU and beyond as we explore and critically examine the possibilities and real world impact of data in our future.
