Data volumes continue to increase at a rapid pace along with a need to solve complex business problems based on insight gained from hybrid sources of data. At the same time, computing power and access to multi-processor hardware configurations enables us to solve increasingly complex problems which were intractable before. Often, solutions to the most challenging problems require the invention and combination of many new techniques and algorithms which span multiple analytical disciplines such as forecasting, estimation, predictive modeling, data mining and optimization.
This presentation will provide several examples that describe some of these innovations in various industries as well as discuss trends and upcoming challenges for future research.
