The world is not short of data. Apparently, we send 188m emails, watch 4.5m videos on YouTube, send 87,500 tweets per minute!

We hear a lot about data science, but do we really know what it means? Is it just about statistics and making sense of a complicated web of numbers? How can it make an impact on businesses?  Can image data be used to give you market information?

Professor Frank Krauss, Director of the newly established Institute for Data Science at Durham University, will be at the event to tell us more about the Institute and how businesses can work with them. You might even hear the story of how they applied cosmology to improve laundry powder for a major household brand!

Networking opportunities before and after the talk.
