Last May, the European Big Data Value community gathered in Sofia, Bulgaria, in an event organised by the Big Data Value PPP to strengthen collaborations among community members and increasing the visibility and awareness about the PPP in East Europe in general and Bulgaria in particular. 250 participants coming from the BDVA association, the BDV PPP projects and the local big data ecosytem enjoyed the program after a welcome video speech from Commissioner Mariya Gabriel stating great European ambitions for Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in Europe (see English translation here).
The second edition of the event focusing on Impact empowered by Data-driven Artificial Intelligence is called the BDV PPP Summit and will be held on June 26-28 at the Latvian National Library, the prestigious and modern landmark of Riga, Latvia.
The first day of conference will be open to everybody and called the BDV PPP Conference, followed by two days of workshops the BDV PPP Meetup. Activity Groups, Technical and Steering Committees, as well as the BDVA General Assembly are on the program.
