Dear Group Members,

If you are interested in Big Data and Internet of Things (IoT), this is the event for you, with a series of conferences throughout the weekend!

Let’s meet Andrea Rangone, professor of Digital Business at Politecnico di Milano, CEO at Digital360 and co-founder of Digital Innovation Academy, and take a deeper look into Big Data and IoT.
In particular:
- future trends
- the impact on our everyday lives
- economic growth predictions and repercussions on national GDP
- changes in privacy government regulations

For those who are not so expert about Big Data and IoT, but would like to know more:
- Big data and Internet of Things were labelled as the fourth industrial revolution, following the steam engine, the electricity and early telecommunications and Information Technology.
- The IoT allows to turn normal things into smart objects — anything from watches to fridges, cars and train tracks. Products that normally wouldn’t be connected to the Internet and able to obtain and process data, are equipped with sensors and computer chips for data gathering. However, unlike chips used in PCs, smartphones, and mobile devices, these chips are used mostly for gathering data that indicates customer usage patterns and product performance. The IoT is essentially the means that collects and sends data.
- Information is defined as Big Data when it demonstrates the 4 V’s: volume, variety, velocity, and veracity. The first 2 equates to a massive quantity of data that can be both structured and unstructured, while velocity refers to the speed of data processing, and veracity determines its uncertainty.

***************The conferences are free of charge and will be held in Italian******************

Networking will follow after the events with discreptionary consumption of food and drinks.
