TDA to host "Big Data for Good" Fall Forum

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.
