Xconomy Forum: D-squared—The Future of Data and Devices

The field of "big data" has rapidly morphed from visionary hype to economic reality. As more companies and industries try to make sense of ever-expanding worlds of information, a few key sectors are winning mindshare and investment: product design and development in the cloud; connected devices and hardware for health, energy, and social applications; and large-scale infrastructure for data storage, sharing, and analytics. Looming over everything, though, are huge issues of cybersecurity and consumer privacy.

Join Xconomy for a half-day conference that will dive into these areas and much more, with an emphasis on identifying the real opportunities and challenges of the future. In a series of interactive talks and chats, mixed with plenty of networking time, business leaders from the Boston area and beyond will address where big data, the cloud, and devices are converging—and how innovators can stay ahead of the curve.
