First BDE workshop completed

n the health and demographic change societal challenge, we held our first BigDataEurope workshop in Brussels on 21st May 2015. The aim of the workshop was to introduce the BDE project to key stakeholders, spend some time discussing key challenges in this domain with invited experts, then breakout into groups to highlight challenges and requirements for the BDE aggregator platform building.
Key challenges in applying big data approaches to healthcare and demographic change that were identified included:
  • how large scale data interoperability in this domain is effected by standards, vocabularies and ontologies
  • veracity and provenance of data sources as the key to building user trust
  • standardisation approaches required to ensure interoperability
    • being clear about data areas where standardization would be a challenge owing to gaps in existing tooling
  • how advances in visualization are needed to gain impact and value from big data
  • the importance of privacy and security especially as this relates to patient/private data
  • how policy is influenced by smart ideas and innovation
  • establishing, recognizing and sharing best practice
