NetService: Blockchain for university certificates
|The aim of the pilot is to address the possibility for public institutions to issue valid official documents in a digital form, on the blockchain. The proposed architecture is based on a permissioned blockchain (Ethereum Proof of Authority, or similar). This blockchain can be obtained, at project level and possibly within a commercial version of the product, via an authentication service from a Certification Authority of the EUTSL list, or the AAI service provided by EOSC-hub project such as Check-In or B2Access. The pilot will look to demonstrate that the solution can be deployed on a federated infrastructure such as the EOSC along with cloud service support.|
DCP: dynamic resource allocation and accounting in a digital marketplace
|Kings Distributed Systems is a Canadian company deploying the Distributed Compute Protocol (DCP), a web platform that aggregates excess computing power from underutilized devices and digital infrastructure and makes it available to researchers and innovators. Their Compute API allows users to trivially express parallel workloads, e.g. Advanced Research Computing, AI/ML, blockchain, mathematical finance. The Protocol automatically distributes those workloads for computation.|
BBC R&D: video coding and compression
The video coding team within BBC R&D focuses on multiple aspects of video technology, with the general goal of supporting the delivery of high-quality content to all BBC audiences. In addition to performing core fundamental research on video compression standards, the video coding team is researching new, advanced ways of performing compression based on machine learning, artificial intelligence and content analytics, while also applying our findings to enable new content experiences.
Kampal: Artificial Intelligence for rare disease diagnosis
|The Spanish Foundation for the Study and Treatment of Gaucher Disease and other Lysosomal Diseases (FEETEG) promotes the scientific research of Gaucher disease and its treatment methods. The Foundation is interested in predicting the probability of development of diseases such as neoplasms or Parkinson’s disease in patients of Gaucher disease (correlations between diseases). For this purpose, Kampal Data Solutions was contacted by FEETEG to develop an advanced analytical model based on Artificial Intelligence with the information available in the Gaucher Spanish Disease Registry.|
