Vast amounts of new information and data are generated everyday through economic, academic, and social activities, much with significant potential economic and societal value. Techniques such as text and data mining and analytics are required to exploit this potential.

Today hospitals are using in-depth statistics to do predictive modeling, identifying opportunities to intervene early, for example. Education officials analyze test results and grade trends to improve student performance. Universities are measuring the student experience during the entire student journey to optimize the student experience with the help of data. And credit card companies and financial institutions ferret out risks and fraud.
