The University of Deusto and DeustoTech, as coordinator of the EDI – European Data Incubator project, invite you to attend to the event entitled  “EDI & Ocean Protocol Meetup: Improving entrepreneurial data sharing to attract data analytics solutions to companies”, which will take place in Turing room at the Faculty of Engineering building at the University of Deusto, 2nd floor, on Monday 7th January, between 3:30pm and 5pm.

The goal of this workshop is to analyse how to improve entrepreneurial data sharing and commercialization, as a key input to the Artificial Intelligence algorithms and the Big Data architectures which enable the provision of added value services in different industrial and socioeconomic sectors. The complementary views of the EDI incubator and Ocean Protocol will be explained. Special emphasis will be paid to the second one, explaining how this infrastructure based on blockchain can help to address important challenges around privacy, trust, security, auditability and data control, key factors that until now have prevented more widespread data sharing in the private sector.

We hope that the workshop offered as “a gift from the Wise Kings” is of interest to organizations dealing with datasets, both Data Providers and Big Data innovators hungry for data to exercise their algorithms.
