In this panel, scientists, data engineers and artists will talk about Big Data and engage critically with ways to analyze, process and visualize it.
Big Data are data sets that are too large or too complex to be processed by conventional data processing software. Originally, Big Data was associated with three key terms: volume, variety and velocity. Challenges in Big Data analysis include data acquisition, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transmission, query, updating, information protection, data source, and, of course, visualization.
Feel free to ask your questions to the participants in the YouTube chat – they will be answered in live Q&A sessions.
The event will be held in English.
