Big Data & Analytics Skills for Your Workforce

Learn how Big Data and Analytics can be harnessed to transform business and policy at this information session, which will be led by Dr. Robert Harrison, Endowed Chair and Director of the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS) at Stony Brook University. 

Executives, managers and department heads will learn:

  • What computational science is
  • How several disciplines leverage big data tools to advance science and form policy
  • How images, through computation, can make 3D models
  • What is in their stacks (and what are stacks?)
  • What technical skills training is offered through IACS: Programming workshops, efficient use of SeaWulf cluster and aspects of high performance computing
  • How to collaborate with Stony Brook's Center for Corporate Education  on tailored analytics training from the IACS to meet your data, analytics, programming, and modeling needs
