October Session

Title:  Big Data and Data Science

Ever since humanity had consciousness, science, industry, and business have all played inalienable roles in the development of its civilizations and they have always been developed in a way that they reinforce each other. We believe that the same will be replayed for big data. In this talk, we will begin by reviewing how major scientific discoveries in one form or another have involves the discovery and accumulation of data and that, typically, it is through profound understanding of the data that resulted in discoveries. With this as preamble, we argue that because data are de facto representations of natural phenomena, they naturally should have their own inherent rules. With this, in today's age of enlightenment, there is a call for the creation and development of "data science," the objective of which is to discover such rules. We then address several critical issues related to development of new data industry and business. We would argue that new data industry and business would not be possible if the fair sharing of a large amount of data is not properly realized. Legal, economical, and technical aspects of the fair sharing of big data must be properly resolved and then we can effectively create new data industry and business that benefits every human being on earth.
