本届峰会由中美创新协会和北京市科协联合举办, 聚焦于当前信息产业发展最快、创新最集中的领域: 大数据。众所周知, 近年来云计算和移动互联网的高速发展催生了大批面向消费者的移动应用公司，它们利用庞大的数据量和先进的机器学习算法为用户提供精准周到的产品和服务；与此同时，越来越多的企业也开始运用互联网和移动平台进行市场营销，并通过内部的大数据平台进行业务优化和管理，这其中不乏传统的电信、金融、教育和医疗机构。企业如何驾驭爆发式增长的数据，从中提炼出有用信息用于提升产品和服务；政府和公共事业部门如何通过数据采集和分析制定更为切实高效的民生、城管、和环保政策；创业者如何能够把握机遇，成为大数据时代的弄潮儿 ---- 这些均是峰会所关注的话题。
The 2014 Big Data Innovation Summit is co-hosted by China America Innovation Network (CHAIN) and Beijing Association for Science & Technology (BAST), with a focus on the latest trends in Big Data -- the hottest topic in the information sector right now and where most innovations are taking place. Recent years have seen an explosive growth of mobile internet companies, which benefit from the now-prevalent cloud computing and mobile technologies and serve customers with personalized products and services based upon massive-scale data collection and machine learning techniques. In the meanwhile, more and more firms--- including traditional telecom, finance, education, and healthcare agencies---start to leverage internet platforms to improve their marketing and sales, and adopt big data solutions to optimize their internal processes. How can firms effectively manage the exploding amount of data, distilling useful information to improve their products and services? How can government and public sectors utilize data to make better political, social, medical, and environmental policies ? How can entrepreneurs ride the tide of big data to create the next-generation successful businesses? All of these topics will be heavily covered during the conference.
The speakers of this summit include senior managers of international high-tech companies, leaders of state-owned and privately-owned corporations in China, entrepreneurs, academic researchers, as well as venture capitalists and local government representatives. During the one-day conference they will have intense discussions about the application of big data in the following five areas: mobile internet, modern business, finance/payment, public services, and wearable technology. Please refer to the conference website for more detailed information.
This summit’s goal is to enable sharing & exchange at all levels:
