Big Data Week in Chicago 2014


Big Data Week is literally just around the corner, and we want to make sure YOU are part of it!

This is your last call to be part of a unique local and global platform of interconnected community events focusing on the social, political, and technological impacts of Data.

Your last opportunity to join other members of Cook County’s growing tech sector and discuss your success stories, best practices, industry forecasts, and visions for the future.

We’re looking for executives, entrepreneurs and thought leaders to present on the following topics:

The Connected Society

  • Internet of Things
  • Smart Cities
  • Wearable Technology/Quantified Self

Implementing Big Data

  • Best Practices
  • Success Stories
  • New Products and Innovations

You’ll present at BLUE 1647, a local technology hub that is doing great things in Pilsen, just south of UIC. We will advertise for attendees. We will also widen your potential audience by live-streaming everything on the web. Click here to see last year’s live-streamed presentations.

If you’re ready, send an email about your presentation idea to Anisha Blumenberg, Director of Technology Communications for Cook County Government Bureau of Technology, our City lead, at anisha.blumenberg@cookcountyil.gov.
