AIMday discussions detail big data

The following is an excerpt from a media release from the University of Saskatchewan

How can you extract the most value from volumes of data to better use Saskatchewan-grown crops for health and wellness applications? How can you use “big data” to improve short-term weather forecasting, optimize insurance pricing models and increase workplace safety in mining? 

These were some of the questions from industry that were addressed April 11 at a University of Saskatchewan (U of S)-led event, where Saskatchewan academic researchers and industry representatives met to discuss challenges in managing big data and to develop pathways to new collaborations.

U of S Innovation Enterprise and the province’s Innovation Saskatchewan hosted the AIMday™ Big Data event at Innovation Place—the first step in a process that is expected to lead to joint research projects that will address specific industry needs.

AIMday Big Data generated 16 new partnerships which companies and scientists are now exploring further to expand the boundaries of knowledge and create economic advantages.
