Bigger, Smarter, Safer: Game Changers for Information Systems
Organizations face a convergence of game changing technologies: big data, ubiquitous sensors and actuators combined with advanced analytics result in algorithms that can model, adapt, predict and act autonomously in a connected world. Such algorithms can approve loans, replenish inventory, trade stocks, control traffic flow, detect anomaly-based intrusions, drive cars, monitor health and administer drugs, manage energy consumption, predict crime hot spots, write news articles, and make recruitment and retrenchment decisions. The increasingly powerful role of algorithms driven by big data in both industry and government also leads to questions about security, privacy, surveillance and algorithmic accountability, among others.
This conference will explore how organizations can – and do – learn, adapt and innovate to respond more effectively, efficiently, rapidly and responsibly to changing circumstances using bigger data, smarter analytics and safer security.
The Midwest United States Association for Information Systems (MWAIS) is a Chapter of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) serving Midwest US members of AIS. The states served by this Chapter include Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. The goal of the Chapter is to promote the exchange of ideas, experiences, and knowledge among scholars and professionals in the Midwest US engaged in the development, management, and use of information and communications systems and technology.
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the School of Information Studies are proud to be the host of the 11th Annual MWAIS conference!
