Motivation and Goals
"Interestingly, we received applications both from academics groups, in particular, machine learning, complex systems and network science groups; and from companies including insurance companies, big data start-ups, etc.."
About the data
About the Challenge
At the end of the day, the lesson is that everybody is talking about big data but there is still a long road to exploiting its full potential. The potential of data-driven approaches still has to be fully demonstrated, and we need more success stories, not only in technology, in order to be convincing at all levels (including market level, political and regulatory level, etc.).
"These initiatives help create the data ecosystem made up of large organizations, talented scientists and SMEs, by increasing the awareness on benefits of data sharing and the synergies among them."
