Bites from Big Data Meetup

Bites from Big Data Meetup

Big Data - a current hype, a buzzword or both? On Thursday, July 20th, NEWTON Media took part in CreativeDock Prague where Dataconomy Media organized a set of presentations, which triggered lively discussions ranging from long-term weather tracking, data storage and user-based insurance to European Union General Data Protection regulation and e-privacy policy in general.

Louise McCluskey, Engineer at Kx Systems, shared how Wall Street tech can speed up the world, out of a wide range of business intelligence projects, an example about monitoring car accidents in New York city was particularly informative.



Miroslav Esser, Head of Big Data and CreativeDock´s partner, presented a ready-to-launch user-based car insurance which triggered a series of questions regarding similar products in Europe, data collection techniques and autonomous driving compatibility.

Last but not least, Jan Romportl, Chief Data Scientist at O2 Czech Republic, demonstrated the applicability of big data beyond the telco sector, i.e. they are already running credit scoring systems based on O2 data.

Thank you Big Data Prague and see you at the next Meetup!
