Ali Rebaie is an Independent Big Data Consultant, President at Data Aurora of Rebaie Analytics Group and one of the Top 100 Big Data Influencers. He aims at growing a community of data enthusiasts, spreading data skills and educating on the use of big data for public good in MEA region. Ali is a frequent speaker at international conferences and regularly trains on data journalism and visualization. He is also a member of the internationally renowned Boulder BI Brain Trust (BBBT).

In giving us a look at the big data market and use cases within the Middle East and Africa region, Ali reminds us of the 5000-year history behind big data, which effectively was born in Mesopotamia. In more present day scenarios, he describes “an exploratory curiosity sandbox,” which is a method he encourages data scientists and organizations adopt for approaching their data-related business problems.
