Open Coffee: Harnessing Big Data


Professor Jeremy Levesley, Head of Mathematics at the University of Leicester will show how modern advances in data visualisation and interrogation can help obtain valuable intelligence in large data sets.

This is a networking and community event for existing and aspiring tech startup entrepreneurs. Aimed at geeks, techies, scientists, coders, students, entrepreneurs and innovators who are serious about turning great tech ideas into money via startups, spin-offs and joint ventures.

    I'd definitely like the conversation to continue too and I've told Jeremy as much. It's early days and it could take months before the possibilities that their expertise presents sink in. I reckon a regular university-business Big Data meetup would be a great idea.

    I'd like to continue the debate on whether to capture all readily available data, or just that what you think you need for your model. Coming from an "industrial internet" background I'm firmly in the camp of storing all the raw data you can, just in case. The cost is of disk storage is really cheap ~£40/Tb. I've never been on a project where all the inputs for the model were correctly specified ahead of time. The risk is, if a candidate model needs a parameter that hasn't been captured, you may have to wait 6 months for enough data to retrain your model. You don't have to process the raw data until you need it.

    I would like to see a regular Big Data meetup. This is a massively important topic.

    I am pleased to see Jeremy beginning to engage with the startup community. Wouldn't it be nice if potential customers walked in the door with their problems. Unfortunately customer development is more about seeking opportunities to contact those to whom you can offer most value. A steady trickle of networking events is an effective way to be around when potential customers feel the need to find out more about the topic.

    A good start. Hopefully we can evolve this and have Big Data focussed info in the future. Nice to see an open and inviting approach from Leicester Uni
