HOW BUSINESSES BENEFIT
The BIAC will harvest publicly available data from the web, and statistical summaries of this data and results of other analyses will be shared with partner companies. It will organize conferences and industry events on cutting-edge topics. It will also develop webinars on various data analytics issues and help develop reverse webinars allowing companies to solicit reviews from Krannert faculty, students and other interested parties on corporate-developed technologies and software. It will facilitate individual consulting by faculty for company-specific needs on a contractual basis. Company employees involved in projects of the center will be awarded certificates of expertise once they gain certain competencies. Students employed at the center will be an excellent source of potential recruits for partner companies.
