About Challenges of our Time: Big Data Revolution: Transforming Our Futures

The University of Stirling and Stirling Management School, invites you to this panel discussion, the penultimate event in our "Challenges of our Time" lecture series, part of our 50th anniversary celebrations.

The event is free of charge, but we ask that you register in advance here

Lecture abstract

Each day we produce 2.5 billion gigabytes of data and 90% of data that exists was collected in the last two years alone. Few would argue that the application of analytic tools to get insights from this data is transforming the way business and society operates. This event brings together leading research and industry experts to further the debate on the opportunities and challenges from (big) data to drive innovation and performance in private and public organisations. The Datalab, Scotland’s data science innovation centre, will introduce the lecture by providing the background context to this data revolution in Scotland and globally. Raymond Martin (Virgin Money) and Jonathan Cameron (National Health Service) will discuss how advanced analytics are helping design and deliver better products and services in the financial and public health sector. Professor William Webster will close the event by highlighting the importance of sound data governance to safeguard data protection and privacy.

This event will be Chaired by Professor George Burt, Deputy Dean of the Stirling Management School.

Panellists
Victoria Clark (Business Development Executive, The Datalab); Mr Raymond Martin (Customer Insight Manager, Virgin Money); Mr Jonathan Cameron (Head of Service – Strategic Development, National Health Service); Professor William Webster (University of Stirling)
