Fireplace Talks on Big Data

Fireplace Talks (FPT) series is an initiative of the UM Campus Brussels team, which aims to create an open space for conversation between academics, practitioners and the audience.

The era of Big Data has arrived and is becoming a part of our daily lives. Whilst it brings many challenges it also creates exciting opportunities for researchers, policymakers, and entrepreneurs. Europe, through projects like the European Open Science Cloud and guided by the FAIR and FACT principles, aims to establish a solid foundation to promote responsible data science and artificial ;

During this first edition of our Fireplace Talks on Big Data, we will hear from two Maastricht University professors - Michel Dumontier, Professor of Data Science at the recently established Institute of Data Science, and Sally Wyatt, Professor of Digital Cultures at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Although both are representing academia, they have different points of view on the topic of data sharing. This will lead to interesting exchanges and will open your mind to ideas you may not have thought about just yet. The professors will each give a short presentation in order to stimulate a discussion on the opportunities and challenges posed by more and open data.

The discussion will be moderated by Prof. Dr. Christine Neuhold, political scientist and Director of UM Campus Brussels.

Come join us for a pleasant discussion after work accompanied by drinks and light snacks.
