Mining the Oil of the 21st Century

A session at GigaOM's Structure:Data 2012

Wednesday 21st March, 2012

2:20pm to 2:35pm (EST)

“Crude Oil” underwrote the economic and industrial explosion of the 20th century. In the 21st century the new black gold is “Crude Data”. Plentiful and available. When refined, our expectations are that distilled insights will provide new profitability in an information economy. In this session we talk to the founder of Opera, a company leading the vanguard to be the “Oil Refinery” for customers through applying machine and human smarts to customers with huge vats of “Crude Data”. As the global industry creates more data, what future profitability can we look forward to?
