Big Data is Dead, Long Live Big Data

Last year, Gartner took Big Data out of the Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies but that does not mean that Big Data is dead. On the contrary, Big Data has become more important than ever. New technologies enable organisations to do more with data than ever before and it is completely changing how we work and live. In this keynote, International Big Data Influencer Mark van Rijmenam will share with you three big data trends, including inspiring examples, that will dramatically change your business in the years to come and he will explain why Big Data is more important than ever.

The Future of the Internet of Things is Distributed

The Internet of Things is radically changing our society and with the emergence of Blockchain, it has become a whole lot interesting. With the Blockchain, connected devices suddenly can be used in completely new ways, thanks to the usage of smart contracts that can be deployed on a blockchain and that can automate many tasks. Devices can start negotiating with each other, they can start making micro- or even pico-payments for services used and thanks to smart contracts, agreements are enforced automatically. Blockchain is revolutionizing the Internet of Things and in his keynote, Van Rijmenam will share insights how Blockchain will do so. He will provide best practices, examples and give you clear takeaways on how you can improve the Internet of Things using the Blockchain.

Building the Future; One Block at a Time

We live in a world of accelerated change and the 4th Industrial Revolution is upon us. Disruptive Innovations such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Robotics, 3D Printing or VR/AR are being developed at an exponential pace. The common denominator of all these innovations? They produce data, lots of it, which can be used to create magical experiences that were unthinkable before. Now it is time to use this data to create products and services that will change the way you work and live, while ensuring your privacy, keeping personal information secure and allowing you to own your data. Let’s build this future together, one block at a time.
