Event Description: 

At this summit, you will be part of a discussion on how the core methods of data science - the established fundamentals as well as the latest trends - can provide valuable insights when used with geospatial information. The workshop will conclude with recommendations on how to advance geospatial data science in theory and practice.

The explosive availability of data about nearly every aspect of human activity, coupled with rapid advances in computing technologies, is transforming data science. Data Science is currently in a Golden Age. The Golden Age is a mythological era in which peace and harmony prevailed, and people did not have to work to feed themselves for the earth provided food in abundance. Currently we are in an age of data abundance and highly available computing resources - a golden age of data science. 

The shift from a data-scarce to a data-rich environment comes from mobile devices, remote sensing, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Nearly all of this data is tagged with location and time - meaning that valuable insights can be gained from applying geographical and temporal analyses. 

As such, the Location Powers: Data Science Summit will focus discussion concerning the development of intelligent systems using knowledge models and their subsequent impact to our insight and understanding of the world, society, and the diverse systems that comprise them.

The Location Powers: Data Science Summit will convene experts on data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, remote sensing, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to provide a technology basis. Participation by leaders in social sciences, business development, and government policy will lead to recommendations that frame and develop meaningful and impactful outcomes from these recent technological developments in geospatial data science.

Already confirmed to speak is Nils Lahr, CEO Orion Systems, a data science innovator who has previously provided innovative analytics for the NBA. Also confirmed for the Summit are professors from USC and UIUC, as well as Chief Data Officers and Scientists from NGA, ESA, AIST, and from Esri, Pitney Bowes, and Oracle.
