Boston + Big Data == De Facto Hub of Big Data

The push to make Boston the de facto hub of big data will continue Thursday with the gala launch of the hack/reduce space in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The historic space — in the old brick Kendall Boiler and Tank building — will be home to big data practitioners from academia, private and public industry. Hack/reduce, which sports the motto “code big or go home”, aims to bring top talent together to train the next-generation of sorely needed data scientists, Chris Lynch, co-founder of hack/reduce told me.
