“Big Data”, from Science to Society

Dr. Patrick FLANDRIN Vice-President, The French Academy of Sciences (Ads), French Republic

Entering the “Big Data” era means facing new technical challenges as well as new societal issues. Some of them will be discussed in terms of:

  • Value: collection, use, and sharing of private/public data.
  • Impact: socio-economy, energy consumption, and environmental footprint of data management.
