DataBio organises a hackathon in the frame of the INSPIRE Hack series. DataBio invites you to join us in Prague on 23-24 Jan 2018 to demonstrate possibilities of using big and open data and open source software in real life applications focused mainly on rural regions. More info here.

Besides, one of the pilots running under DataBio project, named “Big data management in greenhouse eco-systems” was designed to implement Genomics Prediction Models (GS), a new paradigm in agriculture which has showed superior results relative to other approaches implemented thus far. This technology is expected to significantly improve genetic gain by unit of time and cost, allowing farmers to grow a better variety sooner relative conventional approaches.

The pilot held its kickoff had its kickoff meeting recently in Thessaloniki (Greece), during which a comprehensive roadmap was agreed by the parties.

The 23rd BDVA Activity Group Meeting has been held on the 13th and 14th of December in Brussels.

Over 70 participants from BDVA Members discussed and brainstormed about key topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Data Platforms, Big Data Technologies, GDPR implementation, Data Privacy, Technology integration (Big Data, HPC, IoT), Mobility and Transport, Big Data in the GeoSpatial and Earth Observation domain.

The next Activity Group meeting is scheduled on the 31st January (afternoon only) and 1st February 2018.

BDVA members can find all the relevant information in the BDVA Intranet.
