Big data, artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, real-time analytics, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) are profoundly reshaping our organizations, institutions, and society at large. Besides changing the consumer-facing operations of firms, these technologies are changing supply chain design, operations management, human resource management, and product development. Entire new segments of the economy like the gig economy have sprung up. At the global level, these technologies are driving greater market efficiencies forcing companies big and small to adopt these technologies or be left behind. Businesses, nonprofits, health care providers, government agencies, entrepreneurs, and educational institutions all have responded to these changes and redesigned themselves to survive. Indeed, these technologies are ushering in an era of creative destruction.*
Big Data 2021 topics include:
- How Big data technologies are disrupting industries
- How Big data technologies are creating new opportunities
- How Big data technologies is changing the public sector
- How to retrain the current workforce for these new challenges
- How should educational institutions adjust to ensure that people entering the workforce are trained for the AI-driven economy
