How will big data affect the future of Europe, and what steps must be taken now to ensure the responsible use of data? This topic was discussed at the “digitising europe initiative 2016” conference in Brussels. Participants included Dr. Linnet Taylor (University of Amsterdam), Kenneth Cukier (The Economist), and EU Commissioners Günther Oettinger and Vĕra Jourová.
TRIAD Berlin was responsible for the scenography, event and participant management, and the media presentation. The generative graphics focused on Twitter comments: Tweets were localized by software in real time using geotags (GPS coordinates) and displayed over a map of Europe in the center of the screen.
As developed by TRIAD, the participatory concept for the successful “digitising europe” series is designed for different types of events and can be adapted flexibly to the requirements of the given location.
