Talk Title: 
Conquering Data in Austria: a technology roadmap
Talk Abstract: 

The key outcomes of a roadmap study on Conquering Data with Intelligent Data Analytics in Austria are presented ( The main objective of this roadmap study is to provide the basis for the short-, medium- and long-term focus of relevant Austrian funding programs and related measures. Information for the roadmap study was collected from multiple sources, including an online survey, expert interviews and workshops. A technology roadmap for Austria is proposed, and an instantiation of this roadmap as a number of "Lighthouse Projects" , including both education measures and data-services infrastructure (innovation-facilitation) measures is recommended.
