Abstract:
Recently, IBM reported that 90% of all of the data in the world has been produced in the last two years. The explosion in the prevalence of data has the potential to fundamentally change the way we live our lives – how we provide healthcare, how we do business, how we educate students, etc. While the existence of big data offers great potential for improving different facets of life, the inability to mobilize the data often renders it useless for this purpose.  The workflow process required to efficiently mobilize data requires careful thought, planning and budgeting.  In 2014, Gartner Research estimated that 64% of all large business enterprises worldwide planned to implement big data projects but it was also estimated that 85% of all Fortune 500 companies would be unsuccessful in implementing these projects due to workflow process inefficiencies. The science involved in creating an efficient data workflow process is known as ‘data science’. This talk presents a case study in data science as it applies to conservation management.  I also discuss the implementation of data science tools as they relate to a variety of other scientific disciplines.
