by Roberto V. Zicari, an internationally recognized expert in the fields of databases, object technology, Web-business, Web2.0, and Digital Ambients (Web Science) and Data/Context Management.
The presentation will focus on how Big Data can be used for solving social problems.
Big Data is clearly of interest to marketers and enterprises alike who wish to offer their customers better services and better quality products. Ultimately their goal is to sell their products/services.
This is good, but how about digging into Big Data to help people in need? Preventing / predicting natural catastrophes, helping offering services “targeting” to people and structures in social need?
It would be good to 'leverage' the power of the emerging big data tool-box to achieve societal benefits ("digital public goods"). It is of course not a straight identity: big data may be neutral or even negative on that scale, depending on the deployment.
