Dino Pedreschi is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Pisa, and a pioneering scientist in mobility data mining, social network mining and privacy-preserving data mining. He co-leads with Fosca Giannotti the Pisa KDD Lab - Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Laboratory, a joint research initiative of the University of Pisa and the Information Science and Technology Institute of the Italian National Research Council, one of the earliest research lab centered on data mining. His research focus is on big data analytics and mining and their impact on society. He is a founder of the Business Informatics MSc program at Univ. Pisa, a course targeted at the education of interdisciplinary data scientists. Dino has been a visiting scientist at Barabasi Lab (Center for Complex Network Research) of Northeastern University, Boston (2009-2010), and earlier at the University of Texas at Austin (1989-90), at CWI Amsterdam (1993) and at UCLA (1995). In 2009, Dino received a Google Research Award for his research on privacy-preserving data mining.

The mobile data allow the vision of welfare levels and potential economic developments. Demographic and social-economic indicators emerge from mobile usage, supporting the decision process where the development is already underway.

C’è una buona notizia in materia di Big Data che arriva da Bruxelles.

In 2000 mobile phone users accounted for 12% of the world’s population. By the end of 2014, this figure had reached 96%, i.e., 6.8 billion people.

Nel 2000 gli utenti della telefonia mobile erano il 12% della popolazione mondiale. A fine 2014 sono il 96%, ovvero 6,8 miliardi di persone.
