Big Data, from virtual servers to virtual networks – Computer Society Presentation June 20
|July 1, 2013||Posted by CSauthor2 under CS||
The Computer Society held a successful meeting on a very timely subject, Big Data, on June 20th at DeVry University, Pomona. Information on this meeting is included below, but more important are the slides that Dr. Gayn Winters has made available to the IEEE. Dr. Winters gave an outstanding presentation to an enthusiatic audience (who missed the basketball finals in order to attend). Several thought provoking issues (right out of the headlines) were raised and Dr. Winters addressed several detailed questions from the audience. A light sandwich meal was served prior to the meeting, thanks to DeVry, who did another great job of hosting our group. A mix of IEEE members, Computer Society members, students, and guests attended.
