RETHINK big at the annual SEMANTiCS conference
On September 15th, 2015, RETHINK big was present at the annual SEMANTiCS conference, which aims to gather semantic computing professionals, attracting information managers, IT-architects, software engineers and researchers from all over the world to discuss semantic systems. This conference, held in Vienna, offered a European Data Economy Workshop - Focus Data Value Chain & Big and Open Data, to begin a conversation around the topic of the current value and needs of Big Data research activities and technologies.
The European Data Economy Workshop was attended by our partner Consuelo Gonzalo from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid who had a chance to talk about RETHINKbig’s objective of maximizing European relevance in Big Data by bringing together professionals and organizations through Social Media. This conversation was a significant part of the presentations, prior to an interactive discussion session.
This half day event was part of a day of workshops before the conference, which you can follow on Twitter using the hashtag #semanticsconf or visiting any of their Social Media profiles, linked to on their website.
