Describe your interest in Big Data.

I'm fascinated by the Big Data use cases I'm coming across in my research and among my clients. I'm less excited about using Big Data to sell more products, and more interested in its implications for society.

What would you like to learn from this group?

What questions to ask from the data. How to interact with the techies. I'd like to greatly expand my knowledge on the topic.

Do you have suggestions on program formats or topics?

Speakers/workshops once/month delivered by business users. Possible breakout sessions for those interested in learning Hadoop, Tableau, etc. Open to ideas!

Are you interested in helping to organize? Or more interested in hanging in the back of the class...

I'm the organizer - let me know if you'd like to lend a hand!

Do you have connections in the Big Data industry you're open to approaching? (guest speakers, venue sponsorship, etc)

Yes

Introduction

I'm a Dad, a husband, and co-founder of The Data Incubator, a Fellowship program training PhD data scientists and placing them at innovative companies.
