The value of "data" is being recognized for realizing smart social infrastructure. OECD is also discussing the value of data as a new source of growth. Big Data and M2M (Machine-to-machine) will be key in designing the future.

Although Internet and wireless technology have had an enormous impact on society, information and communication technology did not end with broadband infrastructure. The most important impact of the technology should be to solve many issues inherent in environment, city, water management, agriculture, resource management, health care, etc, and to revolutionalize our industrial, economic, and social structure.

In this symposium, researchers both from Japan and Chile will discuss the impact of utilizing massive data in our society, and the prospects of Big Data and M2M technologies for realizing a data-driven economy.
