On Tuesday May 9, Seton Hall University will host the 10th Annual New Jersey Big Data Alliance (NJBDA) Symposium, the state’s “premier conference for big data and advanced computing.”
The NJBDA is an alliance of 18 higher education institutions, as well as industry and government members, that catalyzes collaboration in advanced computing and data analytics research, education and technology. The event theme this year, “Big Data in FinTech,” focuses on the opportunities in new development in the financial industry created by big data and financial technology. Funding for the symposium has been provided by the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
The venue rotates among the partners in the NJBDA; previous hosts include New Jersey Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Kean University, New Jersey City University, The College of New Jersey, Montclair State University, Rowan University, and Rutgers University. This year’s symposium will be held in person from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Seton Hall in the University Center.
