dc.description.abstractBrenda Dietrich's talk includes a fly-by of five decades of information technology beginning with its use to automate business processes and extending to its current role in intermediating social processes. The resulting "data exhaust," together with the availability of low cost computing capacity, spawned the age of analytics, the rise of big data, and the birth of cognitive computing. The past, current, and potential role of operations research in these technology waves will be discussed.en_US
