Recording: The New Space Race

A panel from the Fast Company Innovation Festival

We’re in the middle of a new space race—and with technologies in orbit like China’s Chang’e 4 mission, Japan’s robotic spacecraft, and Russia’s heavy-lift rocket, it’s a crowded field. Yet the real challenge is not the hardware in the sky, but the data here on Earth.

As nations and commercial entities enter into space, we face unprecedented challenges to manage, analyze, secure, and action the vast amounts of data now available from space. To win the space race, it will require broadening the pool of diverse talent inspired to take on a truly universal challenge.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How the space landscape has changed
  • The types of diverse talent we need to solve the big data challenge
  • How we will manage, analyze, protect, and harness data
