Kontagent has stepped up to offer developers, data analysts and designers a chance at taking home $10,000 in their Big Data Challenge, which is already underway. The goal of the contest is to take the collection of data sets at Toronto's open data portal and make something compelling and insightful. What better incentive than $10,000 could you get for directing your midnight hacking sessions?
I recently had my second conversation with Josh Williams, CSO of Kontagent, a leader in the world of big data.

By the end of this second conversation it became apparent to me that there is a huge opportunity to be seized by companies that can leverage big data systems.
Have you ever heard of a Chief Science Officer? I recently spoke to Kontagent’s CSO and was excited to learn that Kontagent’s world of big data processing is one of the few places in the world in which academic exercise is directly applicable to industry.
