Big Graph Data: Billions of Fresh Relations to Digest

Every year the frontier of big data is being pushed further and new systems appear that are able to ingest and extract information from new data available. Facebook serves more than half a billion users per day, Twitter published 140 million tweets per day in 2011, and IBM estimates that more than an Exabyte of data are generated worldwide per year... and the trend is to grow. Those data sources are far from being homogeneous and well structured and solutions for their management and analytic exploitation are required with urgency.

Challenges to Innovation in Europe - Creating an Organizational Structure for Innovation

To many people innovation means small agile companies implementing a good idea. There are some exceptions, Bose and Apple spring to mind as large companies that are consistently cited as innovative. Many large companies have problems demonstrating their innovative credentials but all companies can be innovative. The people who work in large companies are just as creative as those in startups. In a large company there may be innovation challenges with company policies, processes and measurement that are absent in a startup or smaller company. In addition to the generic large company issues there are a number of additional challenges in Europe that may be restricting a large companies innovation strategy.

The Disruption Bargain

Innovation is a bargain within society.  By this I don’t mean a bargain such as a sale or savings, but a social agreement.  We choose to support innovation, knowing that there will be both missteps and upheaval.  Indeed, the flip side of important innovation is disruption - the disruption of the familiar, the established, the comfortable way of doing things.

iXitaly - Foster the excellence

IXItaly

IXItaly è un progetto che nasce dall’impellente urgenza di contrastare l’immobilismo scientifico e culturale italiano utilizzando l’innovazione come architrave di sviluppo, sul quale costruire realtà imprenditoriali che trasformano knowhow in prodotti e i prodotti in ricchezza e benessere.

Facendo leva sull'orgoglio e la creatività unica dell'Italia, IXItaly lavora per creare dei luoghi fisici e virtuali, dove sia facile entrare ed uscire, confrontare le proprie idee, accomunare i propri pensieri ed esigenze, creare, cooperare allo sviluppo e concorrere alla germogliatura di imprese ad elevata innovazione scientifica ed industriale.

Luoghi totalmente interconnessi, aperti, gestiti da innovatori collegati con il territorio e col mondo, fondati sul paradigma di mutualità e open innovation, dove è possibile offrire e fruire di reciproco aiuto e supporto.
