We’re making a lot of fuss about data! ?️?

  • Talks & Workshops
  • This year’s buzz subject, data use is the subject of a lot of debate.

    From freelancers, to start-ups to the giants of the digital world, personal data is at the heart of all our projects. As the years go by the need for and use of data never ceases to grow, leading to the strengthening of laws on the subject. But how can we be sure there is a good balance between the user on one side and the different structures on the other?

    At Web2day we invite you to ponder this problem while hearing the different points of view of our speakers. The use of data in different digital fields can raise questions such as:

    How can data be used for the purposes of research?

    How can personal data be protected so as to protect the privacy of users?

    How can a service be improved using data analysis?

    How can you visualise an infinite amount of data?


    We know that this is a vast subject which raises more questions than it has answers which is why this year you can look at it every day during the festival. So you can take a break with a beer after work and start again with a clear head the next day!  ! ?
