About the Summit

Sensor networks, internet usage, traffic and even human movement through towns and cities continuously generates huge volumes of data. The term "Big Data" describes structured and unstructured data which pours out of these technologies and habits, and finds its way into data centres across the globe. And the technologies responsible for collecting, cleansing, storing, processing and visualising this data, in other words translating it into value, are evolving at a fast pace. Machine-learning and predictive analytics open up new opportunities for enterprises, whilst the Internet of Things has moved from being a buzzword to becoming a reality.
