What project can possibly bring together techniques as diverse as data mining and decision support with the fields of online dating, traffic accident analysis and many more. Only one! SolEuNet.
Modern solution-oriented work processes often bring together loose networks of highly-skilled and entrepreneurial individuals - creating in effect virtual organisations. Such virtual workgroups form up to solve a problem, then break apart and reform around the next challenge. A highly efficient and innovative way of working - but how do you build up a knowledge base and retain it after the group has split up? Researchers in the IST project SolEuNet believe they have an answer.
SolEuNet aimed to develop a Web-based infrastructure for virtual enterprise services in data mining and decision support. The goal was to bring a specialist team of data mining experts together to cooperate in solving each data mining problem provided by a customer. Each expert would apply his/her individual methods to solving the problem, but communicate with the others to share the growing understanding.
John Bullas of Hampshire County Council states that, "Feedback by local experts is currently being obtained to assess the full value of the findings in the real world, but the analysis of the database performed so far by the SolEuNet consortium holds considerable promise for the application of these technologies to other databases that are currently analysed with long-established and limited repertoires of processing tools."

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
