Big Data, and its 4 Vs – volume, velocity, variety, and veracity – have
been at the forefront of societal, scientific and engineering discourse.
Arguably the most important 5th V, value, is not talked about as much.
How can we make sure that our data is not just big, but also valuable? WebDB 2015,
the premier workshop on Web and Databases, focuses on this important
topic this year.
