AUBER Fall Conference 2018
Mountains of Data: Exploring the Next Generation of Regional Research
In a world where we are creating almost 2.5 quintillion bytes of data each day, Big Data, real-time data, and data analytics influence everything from consumer trends to enterprise operations. And, as economists and researchers, we often find ourselves sorting through and analyzing mountains of data to help inform community members, business leaders, and policymakers. The 2018 conference discussed all of these topics and more. It was held from October 13–16, 2018, and was hosted by the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah.
