How is the availability and use of data transforming different industries? The webinar takes a closer look at several sectors known for high regulatory hurdles and sometimes conservative mindsets, among them Aviation and Construction.
We will explore the challenging properties of data; heterogeneity, accessibility, availability etc in general as well as hear about concrete examples of data-driven innovation and shifting attitudes towards our increasingly data-driven environment.
The event will be run as Zoom Meetings, with Q&A and breakout rooms, without recording. Attendance is free.
Please register your interest on Zoom; this will help us with running the virtual event.
