Themes description

Open Education – Cancelled

In Massive Data we trust!  – replaces the Open education theme

We make data love!

How does technologies can help us to gather massive data collection?  what are the methods and tools? what are the showstoppers? How does technology change our way of living and thinking?  A few renowned experts in massive data gathering and analysis will exchange views and critics on the future of the big data domain.

Flow Computing

The tremendous amount of data produced and exchanged over Internet gave raise to the Big Data transition. It's largely covered by the IT community since it will have a major impact in the coming years. Most of the attention is focused on the 3V: Volume, Velocity and Variety of manipulated data, that drives to an increase in computer raw performances and network bandwidth.

Yet, this revolution also implies another paradigm shift in the essence of manipulated data and the way we should consider them. It is not anymore isolated pieces of information but part of uninterruptible flows of various sizes and speed. For the algorithms, a gathering view is not anymore possible and data inconsistency is a general rule. For the platforms, those cannot be anymore stopped – event temporarily – or they would be confronted to information and user losses.

Flow computing considers produced and consumed data as a continuous temporal flow that need to be efficiently absorbed, controlled and analyzed. In this morning session, we will present three actors of flow computing, that will present there activities in this domain.

Open Source Journalism & Open Intelligence

The huge growth of alternative media all over the world rise many questions. As many of the new media have adopted the principles of openness, fOSSa invited some predominant journalists to explain us the way they work. We hope that looking at other domains using openness methods will enlighten us on our own practices. So we will jump out of the OSS box into the OSI/OSJ* box !

Why intelligence and journalism ?
First, news/information, like software, is a domain with high stakes because it can change the course of events.
Second, since the upcoming of the Internet the credibility of the author which was status based is shifting toward transparency.

A vast majority of programmers agree on the fact that a very efficient way for achieving quality and neutrality is openness. What happens when journalists contradict the mainstream media and develop a discourse around open and public sources ?
Some major tv/radio hosts and books/blogs writers (James Corbett, Tom Secker, Pierre Romera, Jan Wildeboer, Antoine Champagne, etc.) will be here to present us the way openness is implemented in the intelligence and journalism domains based on open sources and data. They will probably tell us that when history based on facts contradicts the official story is a huge opportunity to fix the system and head again in the right direction.

Eco Trust, Ecosystem, Economy?

Eco Trust refers to trusted relationships in communities and ecosystems. It's a social approach that is growing day-by-day inside people interacting with the open domain.

Ecosystems deal with the evolution of communities: nowadays we are acting in a network of ecosystems.

Economy is about the value co-creation process, in opposition/extension to the traditional meaning of monetary business results. It goes beyond the common business model approach.
