The CODATA 2017 Conference is to explore the fundamental issues relating to the availability, (re-)use and scientific analysis of data that relate to the most significant contemporary global challenges.
It will explore the nexus between:
1. Approaches that permit vast quantities of data to be created, stored, recombined and analysed, with the capacity to integrate data from disparate domains to reveal unanticipated relationships, and with the use of powerful learning algorithms to establish deep relationships in complex systems.
2. And their application to major global challenges including disaster risk, smart cities and urban development and global environmental change.
