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: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
