back to list of events

Information

 

On 4 February 2015, the Insight Centre for Data Analytics will host a seminar titled 'Insight: Frontier Data Analytics' at Thon Hotel EU in Brussels.
 
The work of Insight and its leadership role in empowering a data-driven society to enable better decisions by individuals, communities, business and governments will be presented and will offer a practical case study on the challenges and opportunities in Big Data.
 
The seminar will explore the science and applications for society of Big Data Analytics and will include contributions from key experts from the Insight partner institutions as well as European Commission officials, MEPs, academia, and industry representatives. 
 
The seminar will examine how evolving technologies will optimise the use of data and its applications in key areas, such as health, energy efficiency, the environment, telecommunications, transportation, logistics, internet commerce, life sciences, transportation, network management, supply chain management, and so forth. For example, one theme of the seminar will be the ‘measured self’: as populations age and healthcare costs increase, there will be a greater emphasis on monitoring prevention and maintaining wellness in future, with patients taking a more active role – sometimes called Health 2.0.  
 
The seminar will also explore the impact of the future and enabling regulatory environment, including the potential impact of the data protection regulation on both technologies under development as well as their applications.
