IEEE International Conference on Data Mining

MoDAT : The 5th International Workshop on the Market of Data

-  Creating tools, data, and sensors from the Social Intelligence (tentative agenda) –

November 18th, 2017, In conjunction with IEEE ICDM2017, New Orleans, USA

Scope  Relevant Areas  Important Dates  Program


Since ICDM2013, MoDAT is a workshop to discuss how to design the Market of Data. In this market, data are reasonably dealt with - opened free, sold for suitable prices, or exchanged/shared based on negotiation. In the negotiation, people are expected to discuss use-scenarios of data until they learn the value of data and feel free to share/exchange data with each other without fearing loss of business opportunities. In MoDAT workshops so far, participants discussed from aspects of data links, data/text/Web mining, creative communication, etc. As a result, methods born or bred in the MoDAT2013 and MoDAT2014 came to be applied for governmental and industrial activities toward data driven innovations and educations. In the last MoDAT workshop at ICDM2015, designing the environment for safe and secure human life has been discussed with various supporting tools and methods that have been proposed in terms of semantic analysis, promoting requirements elicitation, estimating contextual relationships and so forth.


 With reference of these past workshop outcomes, we should make the Market of Data use of more effective and efficient shared mechanism to function moving forward, i.e., not only within a certain area of interest but also cross data domains, cross functions and cross applications to emerge new opportunities integrating different applications. In future the Market of Data shall be developed as a business infrastructure for various stakeholders. For this purpose, this year we should focus on designing new services in combination with unexpected customers, by using/reusing/integrating data in the Market of Data.

Innovators Marketplace on Data Jackets
Participants are invited from all parts of this conference. IMDJ is a gamified place of communication where you will find links between (1) knowledge about data, (2) technologies of AI and data mining/collection, and (3) users' requirements for data and technologies in (1). So far, companies, entrepreneur, scientists, and governments joined IMDJ and have got motivated to start data driven projects. Researchers of data mining certainly have got research funds and collaborators in industries. See the abstract.

Our Past Records

Also we organized relevant workshops so far, since year 2000. That are about data-driven approaches to business strategies such as Chance discovery and Data Synthesis (more than 30 international workshops and symposia, including ICDM 2010, AAAI Springer Symposia 2001, IJCAI 2011, ECAI2004, ECAI2011, KES2000 till 2013) Discovery, Decision, and Design (IEEE SMC 2005-2011), and other workshops organized by the Technical Committee of Information Systems for Design and Marketing: Ohsawa (the chair) has been and is the TC chair of Information Systems for Design and Marketing, in SMC society of IEEE. If we count those organized by any workshop members, the record will be too large to list here, e.g., workshops on semantic web, linked open data, data based marketing, etc., where business people and data scientists meet.
