Discovering Big Data

Thanks to FIS teachers and as part of the “Semaine des lycées français du monde”, students in Première (Yr 12) attended a few talks about Big Data. They created a film about the meetings and talks.

As part of the Big Data Discovery project, we moved exclusively to the HKUST Innovation Hub in Clear Water Bay. There, we were lucky enough to interview French professionals on what Big Data is and the impact it has on jobs today. Then, we were able to attend an Orange conference where the place of Big Data in their sector of activity was explained. Although Big Data is an abstract idea, one thing is certain - it will greatly influence tomorrow’s industries.
