Audience analytics are by far the No. 1 most practiced Big Data strategy in media companies around the world, according to an ongoing survey of media companies by World Newsmedia Network. Launching an audience analytics practice also is an excellent way to commence a Big Data strategy. This hands-on, one-day master class is designed to equip beginner, intermediate and advanced analysts with strong knowledge and skills to move their companies to the next level of audience insights.

Beijing Study Tour

China is vying for the No. 1 spot in the world in artificial intelligence and Big Data innovation. The study tour will give delegates a rare opportunity to visit some of the most innovative, data-driven tech companies on the planet.

The delegation will visit major tech companies in Beijing during two dynamic days of programming. The group of executives will learn about best practices in Big Data and artificial intelligence strategy, organisation, technology, and business development through powerful case studies from top data scientists, artificial intelligence lab directors, data analysts, product developers, and business strategists at each company.
