A week-long festival for anyone interested or involved in the growing phenomenon of big data is due to kick-off on 22 April.
Billed as ‘a global festival of data’, the week-long event will run until 28 April in a number of participating cities worldwide (London, Sydney, Barcelona, Shanghai, Amsterdam, Chicago and Utrecht are among those listed so far). The festival aims to bring together data scientists, visualisers, technologies and businesses from sectors as diverse as government, finance and entertainment. Planned events will include meetups, networking events, hackathons, debates, discussions and data visualisation demos.
