Today I went to conference in Geneva called ExpertDAY’14, (Twitter #ed14da). The main topics were: Big Data, Mobility and Cloud.

I attended the Big Data and Mobility tracks, I learned very interesting things. I have the feeling that commercials tools and service offerings that integrates various features of Big Data are now available. There is still substantial leg works involved, but it’s getting there.

I was particularly impressed by presentation from (Twitter @pyr) that presented a high-level overview of; I knew, but this quick overview of the challenges was really insightful.

Later that day, we had a few demos of a natural language processing tool called luxid. I was quite impressed with the way this tool automatically categorized meaningful elements of the documents.

All in all, an interesting day.
