erThe Austin Chapter of the IEEE Computer Society was created to provide a forum for technology professionals to share knowledge and network.
Located in beautiful Austin, Texas where we enjoy rolling hills, 9 area lakes, plenty of live music and of course, a technology hotbed. Austin was third after San Jose and Sunnyvale in 2006 in the number of patents issued.

IEEE CS Austin November Monthly Meeting
Title: Frontiers in Big Data Analytics: Opportunities and ChallengesDate/Time: November 19th, 2013 6:30 - 8:30 PM, with food/drinks (membership not required to attend)
Big Data is the next frontier in information and science and technology. Scientific experiments, E-commerce, social networks, and sensors in science and business are generating petabytes of data, and in some cases exabytes and more. Information contained in these massive data sets is transforming the way we think about e-commerce, healthcare, transportation safety and a myriad other fields. And it has spawned a multitude of new information-based industries. It is appealing to imagine, for example, health-care where detailed information maintained for each individual (genomic, cellular, medical, treatment, epidemiological) is combined with data from similar patient-cohorts and with existing medical research so that highly efficient and cost-effective treatments can be designed and delivered for each individual bending the cost curve. Similarly, we can also envision numerous business opportunities that combine knowledge of preferences, attitudes, and demographic profiles of individuals and panels of similar groups for targeted marketing. In this talk, I will present opportunities and challenges that span data generation, preparation for analyses, analytics, technical, and policy related issues.
