The rapid advance of cloud-based computation and mobile information systems is not only changing the way customers interact with content, it is changing the innovation potential for technologies and business models. While hardware and networking systems are continuing to improve capability while lowering their costs, information systems are in a period of rapid innovation with new types of content, analytics, and user experience technologies. Customers are becoming more comfortable with new modes of information sharing, new ways of interacting with machines, and machines themselves are getting "personalities".

In this talk I will explore across-industry data and analytic challenges, potential opportunities for disruptive technologies leveraging massive data and analytics, and share my experiences from over ten years of industrial R&D.
