Café Conversations presents Dr. Laeeq Khan discussing “Competing with Data Analytics in a Social World” on Wednesday, Sept. 26, at 5 p.m. in the Front Room at Baker University Center.

Khan is Assistant Professor of Media Arts and Studies at Ohio University.

Responding to the changing environment, organizations are employing data analytics to analyze big data to understand human behavior in digital spaces and make informed decisions that are aligned with their overall goals. Analyzing and visualizing data is a challenging endeavor. Organizations are struggling to understand what analytics can do and how it can provide a competitive advantage.

While the focus is increasingly shifting from descriptive analytics to more sophisticated autonomous analytics, one issue remains the same: extracting value from data and telling a compelling story. Analytics has become a matter of survival, and proper harnessing of these capabilities can provide an organization a distinct advantage.

Science Café and Café Conversations are sponsored by the Office of Vice President for Research and Creativity and the Ohio University Chapter of Sigma Xi. They are free and open to students, faculty and staff. Science Café is a venue for students to share their interests informally during a conversation exchange in a friendly setting.
