Location will be University of Luxembourg.

Presentation & Round Table discussion with Sylvie Gleises (Axa Art), Adeline Pilon (HAPPENING), Adriano Picinati (Deloitte) and several leading art and finance specialists.

THE ART WORLD IS BEGINNING TO TAKE HOLD OF BIG DATA. Earlier this year AXA Art and H A P P E N I N G teamed up to create a white paper analyzing how Big Data is shaping the art world. As well as helping us to develop a more complete vision of the art world, Big Data also offers the possibility to target individuals more closely and to better adapt to their needs. It is for this reason that AXA has created its Data Innovation Lab, dedicated to the creation and development of technologies at the cutting edge of Big Data. Together, AXA Art and H A P P E N I N G will demonstrate how the art world can fully capitalize on the potential of Big Data.
