The EU SatCen organised the 18th of November 2015 (11.30-12-30 CET) an hang-out session on “Big Data in the security domain” in the framework of the BigDataEurope (BDE) project with regard to the “Secure Societies” Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge. This webinar was the first of a scheduled series in the BDE project for the Secure Societies domain and it has been followed by members of SMEs, universities and public entities from Europe. The aim was to give some details on the use of Big Data in Secure Societies and on the recent developments in the framework of the BDE project with regard to this societal challenge.
The first presentation was delivered by Sergio Albani (SatCen), Secure Societies domain leader; his presentation highlighted the role of SatCen in the BDE project and the SatCen Big Data activities addressing the “Secure Societies” challenge. The second presentation was delivered by Michele Lazzarini (SatCen) who showed how SatCen is collecting requirements on Big Data management and exploitation from relevant stakeholders. The webinar was concluded by the presentation of George Papadakis (University of Athens), who illustrated how the requirements of the Secure Societies community are currently taken into account in implementing a relevant pilot in the BDE Big Data platform.
