CaFFEET’13

Signature

“How can Big Data boost Society’s Resilience?”

 

Videos

The third edition of CaFFEET was again a great success, with more than 150 participants from French and Californian corporations, start-ups, academics and governments.CaFFEET’13 addressed the question of Big Data as a key element to support the resilience and sustainability of our societies. It gave the chance, on the one hand, to infrastructure operators and cities to present their needs in terms of resiliency, and on the other hand, to academics or solution providers to show references on the use of Big Data.

The Resilience, defined as the capability of an organization to resist or adapt to external (e.g natural disaster) or internal (e.g. economic crisis) constrains, is becoming a major area of research for infrastructure operators and public bodies, specifically after the recent years natural disasters.
