The European Big Data Value Forum (EBDVF) is the flagship event of the European Big Data and Data-Driven AI Research and Innovation community organized by the Big Data Value Association (BDVA) and the European Commission (DG CNECT) in close collaboration with local organizations. EBDVF2020 will take place in November in Berlin, Germany. EBDVF 2020 is organized in collaboration with DFKI, Plattform Industrie 4.0, Plattform Lernende Systeme, and Berlin Partner.
Special attention is paid to the Focus Track 1: European Data Spaces – Main Session.
Our CEO Lars Nagel will discuss data governance, data usage, Federation of Data Spaces, and Scale AI in Europe together with further prominent speakers.
This track will bring together leading initiatives that are paving the way for what could become functional implementations of European-governed data sharing spaces. For Europe to compete at an international level, its smaller but highly diversified data producers need to join forces. The European Data Strategy outlines a roadmap to enable and realise data sharing spaces as a means to power up AI in Europe by increasing access to data. The longterm vision is for an initial number of sector-based data sharing spaces to interoperate. The need to comply with European values, ethics and legislation when handling data should not be considered restrictive, but as a safeguard for risk-free data sharing that encourage increased participation. In this track, we want to move beyond the ‘What’ and consider ‘How’ all this can be achieved through convergence and standardization efforts by projects, organisations and other entities possessing the right technical know-how, experiences and commitment.
