Session at BDVA Data Week 2021, 26 May 2021
Future challenges in IoT, AI, and convergence of HPC & Cloud & Big Data



On line

Target audience:  

Big Data, BDVA community, Data Week participants, academia, industry, R&D stakeholders

Involved partner(s):


The Data Week is the spring gathering of the European Big Data and Data-Driven AI research and innovation community. This year, Data Week was held online from 25th to the 27th of May. It followed the tradition of the Big Data Value Summit, promoting opportunities, knowledge sharing and fostering Big Data and Data-Driven AI ecosystem development. The 2021 edition of the Data Week aimed at bringing together the research and innovation community working on Data, Big Data and Data-Driven AI, promoting opportunities for this community to grow and strengthening the ties with the Portuguese ecosystem. 


ICT-11 projects (CYBELE, LEXIS, DeepHealth, IoTwins, EVOLVE, INFINITECH) organised a special session with the title “Future challenges in IoT, AI, and convergence of HPC & Cloud & Big Data” in order to promote their technical outcomes and identify HPC/Cloud/BigData, IoT and AI challenges from the projects’ point of view brainstorming on concepts for future solutions. Sophia Karagiorgou from UBITECH participated in the event and made a presentation with the title “Future challenges in IoT, AI, and convergence of HPC & Cloud & Big Data: The CYBELE Case”. Fifty (50) stakeholders from academia, industry and R&D participated in the event.

HPC, Big Data, IoT and AI future industry-driven collaborative strategic topics 

On line

Target audience:  

Big Data, BDVA community

Involved partner(s):


The integration of Big Data, AI, IoT, Cloud/Edge/Fog Computing and HPC technologies allows exploiting large volumes of data coming from diverse and heterogeneous data sources by deploying data processing and data analytics tasks along the Computing Continuum. Building upon previous workshops held during 2020 with the H2020 ICT11 projects, this session aimed at identifying research and innovation needs in terms of convergence and alignment of the basic technologies and their utilization by industry, especially SMEs. Focus areas in the HPC-HPDA spectrum include Data, workflows, HPC/Cloud infrastructure to edge and AI/ML training. The session also aimed at engaging the new EuroHPC JU projects addressing these focus areas. Outcomes are relevant for the future research and innovation activities in both the EuroHPC JU, and the AI, Data and Robotics.

Sophia Karagiorgou (UBITECH) presented the CYBELE project, its contribution and services, in the relevant session along with other ICT-11 projects, such as DeepHealth, LEXIS, Evolve, IoTwins, Infinitech.
