The Colombo Big Data Meetup Is Happening Again


To provide a definitive answer on as to what exactly Big Data is can be quite a challenge. As the name says, big data deals with extremely large datasets. This data by itself usually refers to nothing in particular and discerning any patterns from it is akin to finding a needle in a haystack.

This is where big data analysis comes into play. Using big data analytics, data researchers can identify patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human behavior and interactions. The sheer amount of research you can do, if you know what you’re doing is definitely mind-boggling.

With that in mind, the Colombo Big Data Meetup will be happening once again. Following the success of the previously held Colombo Big Data Meetup, the next meetup will take place on the 15th of November 2017 at the Virtusa Auditorium located in Orion City. Under the topic of “Linguistic Analytics on Data Warehousing”, the Colombo Big Data Meetup will kick off at 5.30pm.
