In Ryerson University Magazine's cover story, “Infinite Info,” writer Patchen Barss talks to five researchers who are involved in big data studies. Find out how big data plays a role in health research, business decisions and more. What does big data mean for the public when it comes to privacy? Imogen Coe, the dean of science, explains how Ryerson’s Privacy and Big Data Institute will support that side of the equation.
Elsewhere in this issue, we celebrate WorldPride, an event that is coming to Toronto June 2014. Chantal Braganza writes about alumni, faculty and employees who are advocates for the LGBTQ community.
There’s also an update on the Student Learning Centre on Yonge Street, news of the presidential search and a cool photo from the Digital Media Zone. Check out class notes for news from your fellow alum from the 50s to 2010.
