After an extended lunch break that included demos in the Exhibition Space (see the exhibition thread for more details), the meat of the conference resumed in the main hall. Gerhard Kreß appeared to capture the audiences imagination with his keynote on the importance of big data in industrial applications like Siemens wind turbines. He was followed by a series of speakers on research around big and linked data.
