Data Driven Intelligence for a Smarter World

In the era of “big data” there is an unprecedented increase in the amount of data collected in data warehouses. Extracting meaning and knowledge from these data is crucial for governments and businesses to support their strategic and tactical decision making. Furthermore, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) makes it possible for machines, processing large amounts of such data, to learn and execute tasks never before accomplished. Advances in big data-related technologies are increasing rapidly.
