Big data is, expectedly, big, but what makes it interesting is the ability to turn it into something manageable. The difficulty in obtaining big data, is the data sets are so incredibly large, that traditional data management systems simply cannot process the information.

Data analytics, the ability to capture, manage, and analyse such large and complex data sets, could allow for improved decision-making and business practices as well as tailored products and services in many different industries and fields.

Leidos is creating analytical tools that improve the speed, quality, and predictive powers of this analysis. These tools will help find trends, recognize patterns, identify potential causes, and forecast the future. The ultimate goal is to provide analysts an enhanced vision to help avoid surprise, understand the present, and shape the future.

Two Leidos colleagues, Curtis Zack and Simon Reid will be presenting topics on how Leidos utilises machine learning and big data with our customers within our Public Services & Energy and Defence & Intelligence divisions.

The agenda will cover:

- Introduction to Leidos and our work in Leeds
- How Leidos utilises machine learning and big data to forecast global events
- Q&A/networking with FREE Pizza
