We have a data flood problem. Less than 0.5% of data is ever analyzed. And our digital universe of data is projected to increase 10x by 2020. Clearly, in this vast ocean lie countless opportunities for entrepreneurs to analyze, interpret, and utilize data. Together with emerging technologies like VR/AR, AI, cloud and quantum computing exploring data will become one of the biggest economies.
"We're at the inflection point of unprecedented, enormous opportunity. Our digital technology supercluster has been designed to capitalize on these important trends."
