W3C/ERCIM at Boost 4.0 kick off meeting

W3C/ERCIM is one of fifty organizations participating in the Boost 4.0 European project on big data in Industry 4.0 which kicked off with an initial face to face meeting at the Automotive Intelligence Center in Bilbao on 30-31 January 2018. Boost 4.0 will demonstrate the benefits of big data in Industry 4.0 through pilots by major European manufacturers. W3C’s role focuses on standardisation, data governance and certification, with a central role for rich metadata as the basis for semantic interoperability across diverse sources of data. This follows on from W3C’s involvement in the Big Data Europe project.
