Does big data really matter? It does if you put it to work in solving today’s complex challenges. TDA’s 2016 Fall Forum will focus on “Big Data for Good,” a special look into the interdisciplinary data analytics research and academic programming taking place across campus. Join us Monday, November 14, for interactive lectures and a research poster session highlighting how Ohio State scholars are using “Big Data for Good.” A continental breakfast is included.
