*What is a Zbit {pronounced zi:bit}?

This is one billion terabits. It represents the amount of digital information currently generated every year, and is about as many bits as there are stars in the observable universe. That’s a lot of data to make sense of. Come and join us at X-Zbit to see how to use Big Data to strengthen Brussels economic, social and territorial cohesion.

This event is the first of a series of annual events.

This year we lay the scientific foundation down, while next year we plan to show off some prototypes, describing how to add “smart” and “always-connected” layers to everyday products and services from the regional innovation players. As for the following events, you’ll find out if you stick with us.

Other interesting event:

Also join the datascience community at their annual data innovation summit on March 30th in Brussels
