The Institute for Health and Business Insight is excited to host the "Annual Advanced Analytics and Predictive Modeling Forum" for the
fourteenth consecutive year. The event brings in business and analytics leaders from a variety of industries and backgrounds - from companies such as General Motors to The Dow Chemical Company - to share and discuss ideas and solutions to business problems. The theme of this year's forum will be "The Dark Side of Analytics", encompassing the mistakes and ethical boundaries associated with Big Data, analytics, and visualization, and ways we can correct and prevent these from occurring. For more information on the event, please email us at ihbi@xxxxxxxxx, or check out our website at http://cmich.edu/colleges/CHP/ihbi/Events/Pages/Annual-Forum.aspx.
We hope to see you there!
