"Data is going to introduce social and economic changes that we see perhaps once or twice in a century," Krzanich said.

"We not only find data everywhere today, but it will be the creative force behind the innovations of the future. Data is going to redefine how we experience life - in our work, in our homes, how we travel, and how we enjoy sports and entertainment," he added.
