Invitation to Attend

We invite you to attend the 2021 INFORMS session on "Big Data Applications in Global Operations and Management," organized by Industry Engineering, Operations Management, and Strategic Management scholars.
Big data and machine learning applications, such as AI, bots, Internet-of-Things, 5G, and blockchain, are revolutionizing how we live. This INFORMS session is a cross-disciplinary enterprise devoted to unpacking how big data and machine learning influence businesses and society. Broadly speaking, we will attempt to understand the effect of big data and machine learning on how businesses organize work, handle digitization and large online communities, and formulate strategies. Additionally, how big data helps us to develop new theories becomes a pertinent question. We have a great panel of experts from Marketing, Operations, Information and Decision Sciences, and Strategic Management, who will share their valuable research insights on these critical questions, providing much-needed directions to aspiring scholars who are intending to incorporate big data and machine learning in their future work.
The session will feature exciting presentations from the following eminent scholars:
Professor Xueming Luo is Charles Gilliland Chair Professor of Marketing, Professor of Strategic Management, Professor of Management Information Systems. He is the Founder/Director of the Global Center for big data in mobile analytics in the Fox School of Business at Temple University.
