ABOUT EBDVF 2017
The 2017 edition was held from the 21st to the 23rd of November in Versailles (Palais des Congrès), France. This year the European Data Forum and the Big Data Value Association (BDVA) joined forces to bring EBDVF 2017.
EBDVF 2017 theme was “Trusted AI in Smart Industry”.
As data is now pervasive in personal, professional and industrial contexts more and more digital services make algorithmic-based decisions in several domains ranging from the processing of sensitive personal data to critical industrial embedded systems. Transparency and accountability of such data-based algorithmic systems become increasingly important for trust and reliability of digital services both in a B2C and B2B contexts. They are competitiveness factors for data-driven innovation.
The European Big Data Value Forum 2017 served as a platform, as well as a business and technology oriented showcase and exhibition space for the Big Data Value ‘Public Private Partnership’ established by the European Commission and the European data stakeholders, represented by the Big Data Value Association.
Keynotes and presentations ranged from cutting-edge industrial applications of Big Data technologies, innovative business cases of the data economy, inspiring future visions, and insights on EU policy-making and R&D&I funding in this area.
Ideas exchanged at the European Data Forum have impact on the design of future research and innovation programmes and policy decisions both at the EU and Member States level. This will drive data-driven innovation further and strengthen the European data economy as well as enhancing its positioning worldwide.
