The future of the open web


The world of data has become really BIG: starting with the desktop, through the mobile phone, and up to the emerging domain of voice AI devices, we are on the cusp of everyday appliances producing continuous stream of rich data. Such abundance of data poses significant technical challenges and has driven massive innovation, along a wide debate in the society on the fairness of it use, privacy and legal issues.

The BIG Track at the Web Conference 2019 will provide a forum to hear the latest innovations and state of the art approaches from leaders in the big data space, from both academia and industry. BIG (Big Data Innovators Gathering) series of events are co-located with the Web Conference series (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018). The day will be composed of a set of keynotes, invited talks and panels.
