Thank you for participating to the Data Science Survey. The results are still available to all participants. Here is a summary done by our experts:
Data Innovation Summit Dashboard by Dieter and Nicholas (view)
Data Innovation Survey results – In Neo4j by Rik (view)
The question “Are all Data Scientists nerds?” – By Nele (view)
Data Innovation Survey 2015 – preliminary analysis by Ward (view)
The plan is to bundle these in a e-book, if you want to be part of this book you only need to submit your analysis. We are still waiting for a team that wants to link this survey with another existing survey. Winners of the best analysis will be announced during our Banking meetup on May 20th.
Thank you for all for making this summit a success.

You might be surprised to learn how many things are connected to the Internet, and how much economic benefit we can derive from analyzing the resulting data streams. Consider these interesting tidbits:
The total economic value-add from IoT across industries will reach $1.9 trillion worldwide in 2020, anticipates Gartner.
Fifty billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020, predicts Cisco.
