2 DAY CONFERENCE

Infiniteconf 2017 - the conference on Big Data and Fast Data

Topics covered at #infiniteconf

Thursday, 6th - Friday, 7th July in London

46 experts spoke.

Overview

Comprehensive aspects of human behavior and the human economy are increasingly recorded as data. Big data is transforming almost every aspect of science and the humanities, driven by the emergence of a data society. How to extract value from data? What technologies can or will power this transformation?

Join us at Infiniteconf in London on July 6th and 7th 2017!

Willing to learn how apps can more efficiently support decision making in a new era of smart cities design and planning cities? Eager to understand how to make Neo4j your core database, and how to make the most out of it? Want to hear what's new on Google's Dataflow, or curious about using Python in the context of word embeddings for Natural Language Processing?

Join us at Infiniteconf and learn how to use the amazing technologies, practical tools and methods available to data scientists and engineering teams in two days packed with talks and discussions.

Follow us at #infiniteconf to hear all the latest news.
