Above the Cloud: Pittsburgh and the Data Revolution

 

Gigabytes. Terabytes. Petabytes. Exabytes. For some, this is a foreign language. For others, it’s just Pittsburghese. No stranger to new languages, Pittsburgh is certainly no stranger to Big Data and the Cloud. Pittsburgh is home to an unparalleled talent pool in the areas of computer science and information technology and boasts a diverse market of industries that are increasingly reliant upon data collection and analysis. As such, Pittsburgh is uniquely positioned to become the global center for cutting-edge big data and cloud computing research and innovation.

 

Refreshments will be served.
