Our own Marlowe Farrar will be talking about "Big Data"

Let’s face it, most of the discussion of Big Data is a geekfest — people talking about Hadoop and other technical tools.  Marlowe’s presentation will not be technical but instead will be examples and stories he has found that show how this technology is eye-opening, mind-boggling and will lead to great advances in knowledge. Find out why some experts are saying: “…data, smart software, sensors and computing are opening the door to all sorts of new uses in science, business, health, energy and water conservation.” “Big Data may well turn out to be the most powerful tool set the human race has ever had to address the widespread challenges facing our species and our planet”. “…if we are careful and wise, in the not too distant future the new set of technologies may have an impact on humanity as great as those of language and art.”

Les Ball recently had a discussion with an executive from IBM and he kept coming back to Big Data---they must be something there.

If time allows, we will talk some about books that we are reading.

As usual, we will start at 4:00PM at Babson and then adjoin for dinner at Papa-razzi's.
