Big Data Week

Data connects people and society. It drives scientific discovery and forms the backbone of our economies.

Next week is Big Data Week (5-11 May), a global festival during which an anticipated 5,000 data scientists, data technologists, data visualisers and leaders from the business, not-for-profit and government sectors will meet at events in 30+ cities across Europe, Americas, Australasia and Asia Pacific. They will discuss how big data impacts their organisations, plus the social, political, technological and commercial impacts of big data.

Fast, reliable telecommunications connectivity is critical for enabling the processing of big data for analysis. AARNet’s reliable, high performing network has long supported the big data needs of Australia’s research and education community.

Australia plays a significant role in important global research projects in radio astronomy, biosciences, climate change and particle physics, including the Square Kilometre Array, Large Hadron Collider, Climate Model Inter-comparison Project and the International Cancer Genome Consortium, for example. Australia’s participation in these projects is enabled by the capacity and performance AARNet delivers.
