The ​era ​of ​Big ​Data ​has ​brought ​with ​it ​both ​significant ​potential ​benefits ​as ​well ​as ​challenges. ​ ​There ​is ​an ​idea ​that ​perhaps ​the ​technical ​advances ​in ​our ​capability ​to ​capture, ​store ​and ​analyze ​very ​large ​quantities ​of ​data ​has ​temporarily ​outstripped ​our ​current ​ability ​to ​develop ​new ​and ​meaningful ​ways ​in ​which ​to ​analyze ​and ​interpret ​this ​exponentially ​growing ​data ​store. ​ ​One ​of ​the ​key ​strategies ​associated ​with ​meeting ​this ​challenge ​is ​sharing ​newly ​emerging ​issues, ​developing ​novel ​ways ​of ​looking ​at ​large, ​inter-related ​data ​sets ​and ​uncovering ​new ​applications ​and ​opportunities ​for ​this ​unexpected ​largesse ​of ​complex ​data ​sets. ​ ​ "Big Data, Big Challenges", ​hosted ​by ​The ​University ​of ​Texas ​at ​San ​Antonio, ​is ​dedicated ​to ​sharing ​recent ​knowledge ​and ​experiences ​gained ​in ​the ​area ​of ​Big ​Data ​by ​researchers ​in ​academia, ​industry ​and ​the ​government ​sectors within the areas of business, national security, infrastructure, healthcare and visualization.
