Increasingly, the prosperity, innovation and security of individuals
 and communities depend on a big data-literate society, which calls for a concerted effort
 to determine what it means to be a big data literate citizen, information worker, researcher, 
or policymaker. As a step toward that goal, the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) is holding a Big Data Literacy Workshop, at which participants will work to identify the quality of regional learning resources and programs that can improve 
big data literacy, and to chart a path forward that will bridge big data practice with big
 data learning, education and career readiness. The Workshop will bring together experts from the institutions of the Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub (NEBDIH) 
and elsewhere to study the state of big data literacy across the Northeast and beyond,
 and to make recommendations for its trajectory over the next 5 years.

As a stakeholder in the Northeast region, we invite you to the Workshop to articulate the education needs of the big data community.
 Please join us for a series of keynote talks on the current and future needs of the big data practice community and a collaborative effort to draft a fundamental set of essential big data literacy concepts. An agenda is provided below - please check back for updates.
