Cloud Computing and Big Data for Service Innovations & Learning Up till now, most of the adoption of cloud computing focusses on the automation and consolidation of traditional IT services. As such, the gains are confined to the uniformity of control, cost reduction and better governance. Recent adoption of the cloud has gradually moved into tactical and even strategic levels thereby demonstrating a high level of gains for using the cloud for business transformations and innovations. Such benefits include dynamism in business model compositions and speed and ease in orchestrating service innovations in the cloud. This talk will shed light on how massive and rapid accumulation of data in the cloud can support human-machine cooperative problem solving and re-define the landscape of Open Innovation and Connectionist Learning via a Knowledge Cloud.
