EDF2012 Stefano Bertolo - Future European activities and funding perspectives for SMEs

  1. 1. Future Europeanactivities and fundingperspectives for SMEsEuropean Data Forum 7 June 2012, Copenhagenstefano.bertolo@ec.europa.eu
  2. 2. General guidance• Work Programme 2013 for FP under preparation• Will be officially published in July 2012• Cannot discuss the actual text/budget until official• Will restrict discussion to data intensive SMEs
  3. 3. Content analytics• Information Extraction from • Speech • Audio • Video• Exploiting social, collective intelligence• Semantic interpretation of • Sentiment • Events (space/time) • Across media, languages
  4. 4. Machine translation• High quality, suitable for publication• Autonomous learning from human feedback• Covering everyday language• Using web or enterprise repositories to build translation resources
  5. 5. Spoken, multimodal interactions• Handle conversational speech• Recognize/generate social cues• Desktop, mobile, games• Using web or enterprise repositories to build translation resources
  6. 6. Plans for NLP future• Roadmap work (SA) for platform to host: • multi language datasets • processing tools • Basic services
  7. 7. Data analytics• Novel algorithms for high volume real time analytics• Support for high growth novel data-types (e.g. genomics, 3D, IoT data streams)• Non traditional DBMS (~ no/newSQL)
  8. 8. Networking and hardware optimizations for Big Data• SA to develop roadmap: • Assuming hardware will grow on schedule X GPU, FPGA, memory, I/O, energy efficiency, inexact chips, … • what should Big Data practitioners do to take full advantage of X? Data parallelism, programming environments, etc…
  9. 9. Data externalities• SA to develop roadmap: • positive externalities Data exhaust, data markets • negative externalities Re-identification, privacy
  10. 10. Problem / Opportunity• Large volumes of open data made available by • Scientists (e.g. web crawls) • Volunteers (e.g. OpenStreetMap) • Administrations (local, national, international)• Examples of open data reuse dont seem to have kept pace with this growth• What is the bottleneck?
  11. 11. Create environment for data apps• Remove all obstacles for SMEs • Obtain the open data they need • Clean, link data • Connect them with funding, markets• Allow SMEs to experiment in very short cycles• Use best technology for very concrete apps
  12. 12. Create environment for data apps• Remove all obstacles for SMEs • Obtain the open data they need • Clean, link data • Connect them with funding, markets• Allow SMEs to experiment in very short cycles• Use best technology for very concrete apps
  13. 13. Software components for data apps• Make it easier to publish data• Make it easier to link data• Make apps data aware• Support multiple platforms (desktop, tablets, mobile, …)
  14. 14. Language technologies apps• From brilliant technical concept to industrial product• Performance, robustness, coverage• Integration, experimentation, usability• Exploitation paths
  15. 15. ICT Proposers’ Day 2012 26-27 September, WarsawNetworking for European ICT R&D  Aim of the event: to prepare for the Calls for proposals of the new ICT WP2013 (1.5 billion € of funding) - by networking and partnerships building - by first-hand information from EC officials  Structure: - thematic sessions with presentations of proposal ideas - information stands & bilateral meetings  Registration: free of charge, open from the end of June 2012 http://ec.europa.eu/ictproposersday
