The first ACM Data Economy Workshop, co-located with the 2022 International Conference on emerging Networking EXperiments and Technologies (CoNEXT 2022), will take place on December 9 in the splendid setting of Rome, at the Sapienza University of Rome. Our Research Professor Nikolaos Laoutaris is one of the Workshop Chairs.
An exciting multidisciplinary agenda including insightful keynotes by Bruce Pon (Founder of Ocean Protocol), Damian Boeselager (Member of the European Parliament), Carme Artigas (Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence, Government of Spain), paper sessions, and a final panel involving the keynote speakers, Marko Turpeinen (1001 Lakes), Matthijs Punter (TNO) and Pablo Rodríguez (Google).
This workshop represents an excellent opportunity to learn, to connect, and to debate the future of the data economy. Data-driven decision making powered by Machine Learning (ML) algorithms is changing how the society and the economy work and is having a profound positive impact on our daily life. With the exception of very large companies that have both the data and the skills to develop powerful ML-driven services, the large majority of provably possible ML services, from e-health, to transportation and predictive maintenance, to name just a few, still remain at the idea or prototype level for the simple reason that data, the skills to manipulate them, and the business models to bring them to market, seldom co-exist under the same roof. Data has to somehow meet with the ML and business skills that can unleash its full power for the society and economy. The mission of the ACM DE workshop will be to bring together all the CS skills required for helping the Data Economy.
