With the advancements of internet technologies, cloud computing and hardware, digitalisation is indeed revolutionalising the manufacturing, products and services industries. This seminar will discuss the power of cloud computing, with all the massive array of equipments, software, and connections, functions as a canvas for orchestrating and delivering flexible knowledge services including crowdsourcing, ideation, micro-tasking and human-machine cooperative problem solving. However, in order to exploit the potential of the Cloud, some major unlearning and lessons learnt gained from Big Data research are needed. The second half of the talk will showcase a range of Big Data achievements from various industries including automobile, healthcare, transportation and retail..Success in Big Data not only requires an analytical and intuitive mind but often require unlearning e.g.  need to let go exactness for approximations. Among other things, one may need to bypass casual explanations and pattern matching to fully exploit the power of Big Data. New algorithms need to be developed. This talk will conclude with recommendations on managing knowledge in the age of digitalisation.
