Big Data and Human Mobility @ Lucca Nerd Festival

SoBigData participated in the Lucca Nerd festival with a talk by Roberto Trasarti titled Big Data and Human Mobility. Roberto talked about how Big Data and social mining can be a tool that enables innovative services for end users or public administrations to improve the lives of citizens: Carpooling, Elettrificability, Demography (City of Citizens context), indicators of well-being (Wellbeing context) and collection of opinions and needs (Societal-debate context). The presentation was for an open public and there was a debate about how to create such services always considering privacy and ethics. Also presented are Sobigdata initiatives such as the Tuscan Big Data challenge, the Big Data Master and the Phd + in addition to the Transnational Access and Virtual Access.
