Big Data Webinar: Data Acquisition, 21th November, 16:00 CET

Recording of the session see here.
We are pleased to announce the start of the Big Data Webinar series and invite you to actively participate and help shape Europe's Big Data Agenda.
The Big Data Webinars aims to spur discussions around the findings of the technical working groups and sectorial forums of the Big Data Public Private Forum project: The technical white papers, sector’s requisites as well as the sectorial and cross-sectorial roadmaps.
We actively seek contributions and feedback from all stakeholders in their respective technical areas of the Big data value chain and their respective industrial sectors to help draft roadmaps for the European Big Data Community to align supply and demand, as a way of increasing competitiveness of European industries.
The series will start on November 21st at 16:00 CET with the discussion of the technical white paper of the working group of Data Acquisition. The session will be lead by Axel Ngonga, Data Scientist at University of Leipzig and leader of the technical working group on Data Acquisition. Current schedule of the series.
What to expect
The leader of the technical working group will give a short (max 15min) presentation on the main findings of the Data Acquisition working group. This presentation will be followed by an open and interactive discussion of all participants. We encourage you to participate as we seek your feedback to further develop the first draft white papers. Your contribution will directly influence Europe’s Big Data roadmaps.
Who should join
The Webinar is open to the public free of charge. It is tailored for professionals and technologists working in the area of Big Data, who are interested to learn more about and share their expertise on Data Acquisition.

Data Acquisition
Data acquisition has been understood so far as the process of gathering, filtering and cleaning data (e.g., getting rid of irrelevant data) before the data is put in a data warehouse or any other scalable storage solution on which data analysis can be carried out. Most data acquisition scenarios assume high-volume, high-velocity, high-variety but low-value data, making it important to have adaptable and time-efficient gathering, filtering and cleaning algorithms that ensure that only the high-value fragments of the data is actually processed by the data-warehouse analysis.
The goals of the data acquisition white paper are threefold: First it aims to present open state-of-the-art frameworks and protocols for big data acquisition as used in the industry. The second goal is to unveil the current approaches used for data acquisition in the different sector forums of the project. Finally, it aims to present current requirements to data acquisition as well as possible future developments in the same area.
