Connecting People, Data, and Apps Without Centralization

A Talk by Ruben Verborgh (Professor, Research affiliate, , Technology Advocate, Inrupt / Ghent University / MIT)

About this Talk

Big Data has transformed the world big time. It led many companies to strongly focus on data analytics, trying to collect and control gigantic amounts of data. After years in the rat race, several of them are slowly realizing that the continuous striving for having more data than others is maybe not the most meaningful business objective for everyone.

In fact, the data collection craze is steadily killing innovation. In this talk, I will discuss post-Big Data thinking in which data is controlled again by people, outlining the goals and ambitions of the Solid project.
