ABOUT DATA WEEK
Data Week is the spring gathering of the European Big Data and Data-Driven AI research and innovation communities. During the event, the participants share knowledge and results, discuss topics of common interest, find synergies, build new collaborations and identify new challenges and recommendations.
Organised by BDVA, Data Week 2024 will center its focus on the fundamental elements of Data Value creation. Artificial intelligence (AI) serves as a pivotal tool in unlocking data value through various means. Creating value from data also requires viewing it from an ecosystem perspective and fostering collaboration among multiple stakeholders, which lays the groundwork needed for research excellence, that is required to be rapidly put into action for competitiveness and societal benefit.
Data Week always transcended the confines of a mere week-long discussion, as it embodied a fusion of several local and international events aimed at nurturing the field’s growth. Each event delved into various topics that adhere to a core theme. Data Week 2024 will extend its activities and events over the year to accommodate the dynamic changes that data and AI bring to our businesses and society, connecting our meeting days with other relevant events, emphasising the need for collaboration.
On 12 March 2024, Data Week will take place under the umbrella of the Data Spaces Symposium 2024, in Darmstadtium, Darmstadt (Germany). DSS is organised by DSBA (BDVA, FIWARE, Gaia-X, IDSA) and the Data Spaces Support Centre (DSSC). Make sure to register NOW!
Through DSS, Data Week opens up to a crucial gathering for pioneers in data space innovation, a platform to showcase cutting-edge, market-ready use cases, advanced technology solutions for both established and emerging data spaces and the outstanding work of the Data Spaces Support Centre in crafting a foundational blueprint for common European data spaces. Generative AI and Foundation models, Implementation of AI Act, involvement of SMEs and Startups in Data Spaces, Data monetisation, applications in data spaces and digital twins are some of the topics to be addressed on the 1st day of Data Week 2024.
Data Week 2024 will continue on 5 June 2024, in conjunction with the LAILEC conference organised by KU-Leuven, in Belgium. Our meeting’s main topics will gravitate around the legal and ethical aspects of data and AI: automated compliance, ethics in Foundation models, and more details will be provided soon.
Our Data Week will extend throughout the year, with additional dates to be announced shortly. Stay updated by following us on https://data-week.eu/, https://bdva.eu/ and our social media channels!
