The European Big Data Value Forum (EBDVF 2018) was held 12 – 14 November in Vienna, Austria. It is the key European event for industry professionals, business developers, researchers, and policy makers to discuss challenges and opportunities of the European data economy and data-driven innovations. The EBDVF featured many interesting talks as well as
high quality networking. The AEGIS project was formally disseminated on the third day of the EBDVF 2018 in two different BDVA workshops.
The first BDVA workshop “Big Vehicle Data to Digital Services” mainly organized by VIF (Christian Kaiser and Manfred Rosenberger) and FOCUS (Yury Glikman) featured an interactive program, where about 20 workshop participants from different domains including automotive, manufacturing, smart home, law, and smart city joined forces in four groups to capture relevant application domain challenges in a first step. They then collaborated on designing a concrete use case per domain to solve the number one of the prior identified challenges by proposing a data-driven solution approach. To bring all workshop participants into a creative mood and to set the baseline for data driven innovations in the vehicle domain, two short talks from the AEGIS project team kicked off the workshop. In a first talk from Alexander Stocker (VIF), the automotive demonstrator of the AEGIS project was presented, focusing on what can be achieved with vehicle data to enable three different data-driven services, road quality detection, driving risk detection, and regional driving safety risk estimation. A second talk from Christian Kaiser (VIF) featured the role of tech-startups and vehicle manufacturers (OEMs) in enabling future data-service-ecosystems in the automotive domain and introduced the variety of data collected by modern passenger vehicles.
The second BDVA workshop “Policy issues, opportunities and barriers in big data-driven transport“organized by the subgroup leader of Mobility and Logistics Subgroup (BDVA) & Head of Transport Lab for Research at INTRASOFT International Mrs Akrivi Vivian Kiousi, featured pitches of various H2020 Big Data projects related to big data in transport including the AEGIS project pitched by Alexander Stocker (VIF). This workshop session offered great networking opportunities as besides AEGIS a series of other big data projects from the transport sector including TransformingTransport, LeMO, Track and Know, BigDataOcean, ICARUS, QROWD, and CERTH were presented by their respective project partners.
