Big Data Analytics for European Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

28.05.2013
Big Data Analytics is a key competence of TU Berlin, especially in the context of the Data Analytics and Cloud Lab affiliated to the School for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

The DOPA project, coordinated by Volker Markl, speaker of the Data Analytics Lab, intends to provide data pools for both web and statistical data to the information economy, with the particular goal to provide small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with data as the basic ingredient for data analytics.

At the European Dataforum 2013 in Dublin, the DOPA project demon-strated several use cases developed in that project. Thereby, the industrial partners ensured that the use cases are of practical relevance.

Within the DOPA project Internet Memory Research and DataMarket act as data pool providers. OKKAM s.r.l. is responsible for the data linkage among different data pools. Moreover, AMI Software and VICO Research focus on market analysis and consider the demands of potential users.

One use case that correlates Microblogging Posts and Stock Trading Volume raised the attention of many visitors. Jochen Adamek, who represented the DOPA project together with Moritz Schubotz from TU Berlin at the European Dataform, concludes: "We registered a very high interest in the DOPA project and we had fruitful and interesting discussions with po-tential users of the DOPA data pools."

DOPA is a specific targeted research project (STREP), co-funded by the European Union, within the Seventh Framework Programme. The consortium is led by Technische Universität Berlin (Germany). The other five partners are Internet Memory Research (France), DataMarket (Iceland), Okkam (Italy), VICO Research (Germany) and AMI Software (France/UK).

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
