Impressions of Day 2 of EDF2013

The 2nd day of the European Data Forum 2013 in Dublin, Ireland started with a very interesting keynote talk by Knut Sebastian Tungland (Chief Engineer IT at Statoil) giving insights about the challenges that Statoil are facing when working at the bottom of the sea and how the understanding of the available data can help to work more efficiently and how to avoid accidents for humans as well as for the nature. This keynote was followed by an Open Data Session with Florian Bauer of REEEP (presenting the reegle tagging API), Malte Beyer-Katzenberger of the EC presenting the EC Open Data portal and John Sheridan of UK National Archives showing the linked data system of and the benefits of it.

The morning of the 2nd day of EDF2013 provided 2 parallel sessions afterwards: a languagel technology panel as well as an introduction to the BIG Project.

Day 2 brought a new achievement to the European Data Forum - the EDF2013 exhibition space with 32 exhibitors - the 2 hours lunch break was a good opportunity for allparticipants to explore the projects, products and demos on (big) data solutions.
