The European Big Data Hackathon was successfully completed with the help of BigO!
The ‘myBigO‘ app was one of the two applications that were used for data collection for the European Big Data Hackathon. During the event, the hackathon teams were given raw data collected by the app, meal self-reports and pictures, as well as behavioural indicators extracted by the BigO system related to physical activity, transportation modes and types of visited locations. The teams that participated in the Hackathon were representatives from statistical authorities all around Europe and found that the data provided by BigO have significant potential in increasing the accuracy and breadth of data collection, while at the same time reducing the burden on both researchers and study participants for official statistics and therefore policy decision support.
