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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
