BMBF Big Data All Hands Meeting and Smart Data Innovation Conference 2017
After two exciting days, the 2nd Big Data All Hands Meeting that was held in conjunction with the Smart Data Innovation Conference is over. 25 exciting talks from all over Germany demonstrated that Big Data is a major topic far beyond KIT and academia, as KIT’s vice president Oliver Kraft stressed when opening the conference.
The achievements during another year in German Big Data Research were presented. Different Big Data Projects reported on their successes as well as the known and newly rising challenges . The talks about legal and privacy issues at the beginning made it clear that Big Data will remain an interesting topic to practice from various aspects. The economical relevance became particularly obvious in the Data Innovation Community Meeting Industrie4.0. In addition, the societal relevance of the topic could be experienced looking at Big Data art at the ZKM in the evening.
The interdisciplinary aspect was a particular part of many scientific talks on applications, analytics and platforms. You could feel the enthusiasm of both researchers and industrial representatives during the whole conference. Chances for networking were well used. The hands-on-tutorial on the SDIL platform focused on the hot topics of data analytics and machine learning.
After a great meeting last year at SCADS in Dresden and a successful event this year, we are already looking forward to meet everyone next year at BBDC in Berlin.
