SALTED has been present in one of the latest seminars organized by Schloss Dagstuhl, a presitigous institute to foster world-class research in computer science by facilitating the communication and interaction between researchers.

SALTED Schloss Dagstuhl

Our colleague, Dr. Gurkan Solmaz from NEC Laboratories, presented a talk during the Dagstuhl-Seminar 23432 "Edge-AI: Identifying Key Enablers in Edge Intelligence". This seminar addresses challenges such as:

  1. Large-scale deployment of the edge-cloud continuum.
  2. Energy optimization and sustainability of such large-scale AI/ML learning and modelling.
  3. Trustworthiness, security, and ethical questions related to the intelligent edge-cloud continuum.

The talk at Dagstuhl included a short introduction to the concept of Data Spaces based on the recent developments of IDSA, Gaia-X and FIWARE, and the challenges of data interoperability and data value. The recent work from the Data Ecosystems and Standards (DES) group at NEC Laboratories Europe focuses on solving those challenges using real-world sensor data and geographic data from the case studies of City Liveability Index (CLI) of SALTED project, Smart Campus Murcia, and Humanitarian Landmine project. The data enrichment and contextualization platform is utilized in the case studies through the technologies such as TrioNet, FIWARE Scorpio Broker, FIWARE FogFlow and AI/machine learning for predictions and transfer learning.

If you want to read more about such challenges, a recommended read is the paper titled "Enabling data spaces: existing developments and challenges" where more details are given on Data Spaces.
