We are moving from an age of information to an age of data!
By 2020, tens of billions of objects will be connected and the exponential volume of data created within each area of global economy is almost infinite. It is expected to grow forty to fifty-fold between 2010 and 2020, to reach 40 zetabyte (1021)!
This conference will address the use of "Internet of Things”, the emergence of Big Data to derive economic growth. Case studies will demonstrate how big data analytics can revolutionise business models in many sectors of the economy such as healthcare, cities, environment and ecommerce.
A unique programme of experts from across the business, governmental, academic and information security landscape will explore the societal, business and technical challenges of data analytics, offering a practical insight into the benefits and pitfalls, the impact on business sustainability and new opportunities that implementation of big data strategies can create. Securing data to prevent unauthorised access to corporate and private information will be addressed as well. This is one of the issues of greatest concern: How do we ensure confidentiality and respect of privacy within a big data ecosystem?
UKTI addresses this digital global revolution by organising a Franco-British Business Conference on the future opportunities and challenges created by Internet of Things, Data Analytics and Information Security. Inspiring case studies will reveal how access to big data creates new opportunities in business and R&D.
This conference-debate will be held on Thursday 19th March 2015, in the exceptional setting of the Residence of the British Ambassador in Paris from 8.30 to 17.30.
This event will feature presentation of industry, academic and governmental keynotes, breakout sessions and open discussion. The conference will also feature an expo floor during the networking sessions, allowing UK delegates to showcase their leading solutions and discuss with French counterparts application to specific requirements. It will bring together British and French technology innovators in Internet of Things and Big Data.
French government’s agencies, IoT and Big Data experts and system integrators, telecommunications providers and trade associations will be invited to attend this conference.
The conference is free to attend but spaces are limited. We encourage that you register early. We hope to see many of you to contribute to this timely Big Data debate!
