The future is here but less than 2% of all data generated in the last few years has been explored and exploited.  Research Science in our emerging technologies group is all about breaking new ground and inventing ways to help any person or business explore and answer their most urgent questions about how data is related and how it can solve their business problem. Pioneering new ways to drive insights from massively parallel data-intensive Graphs, our mission is to develop a whole new approach to visualizing meaning and value from petabyte-scale data sets across Edge, Core and Cloud as we shape new User Experiences.
