The main objective of this track is to make accessible by European industry and society the last advances and tools in Europe on Big Data and AI, to foster the adoption of these tools and services, and to facilitate their market uptake. To accomplish this goal, needs, challenges and barriers from both the offer and the demand side have to be considered. Besides, the successful achievement of this objective implies that we consider simultaneously the European dimension (solutions available at European level) combined with a national and regional perspective (solutions adapted and accessible by local ecosystems). It includes:
  • To understand needs of industry and society both at European and national / regional level
  • To bring to them last advances in Europe on Big Data and AI
  • To make those solutions accessible at regional / local level
  • To support them in the adoption and use of the solutions
  • To find ways of collaboration and understanding of offer and demand sides

Sponsored talk
November 4, 2020
1:30 pm - 2:00 pm



This sponsor talk aims at presenting the EU-funded H2020 project PLATOON.

PLATOON aims to digitalise the energy sector, enabling thus higher levels of operational excellence with the adoption of disrupting technologies. PLATOON will develop a COSMAG-compliant refe-rence architecture for big data processing for the energy sector. PLATOON will develop interoperability layer  and IDS IDS connectors, enabling multi-party data exchange while ensuring data governance and data sovereignty.
