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: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Im Focus: Successful Mechanical Testing of Nanowires

With innovative experiments, researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrums Geesthacht and the Technical University Hamburg unravel why tiny metallic structures are extremely strong

Light-weight and simultaneously strong – porous metallic nanomaterials promise interesting applications as, for instance, for future aeroplanes with enhanced...

Im Focus: Virtual Reality for Bacteria

An interdisciplinary group of researchers interfaced individual bacteria with a computer to build a hybrid bio-digital circuit - Study published in Nature Communications

Scientists at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) have managed to control the behavior of individual bacteria by connecting them to a...

Im Focus: A space-time sensor for light-matter interactions

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.

The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...

Im Focus: A transistor of graphene nanoribbons

Transistors based on carbon nanostructures: what sounds like a futuristic dream could be reality in just a few years' time. An international research team working with Empa has now succeeded in producing nanotransistors from graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, as reported in the current issue of the trade journal "Nature Communications."

Graphene ribbons that are only a few atoms wide, so-called graphene nanoribbons, have special electrical properties that make them promising candidates for the...
