DAIS

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in Edge computing is entering a new era based on the use of ubiquitous small and connected devices. Until now, Europe has not been doing well, as America sets the standards and most components are produced in Asia or America. 

This project believes doing better is realized by (1) Putting European values of selforganization, privacy by design and low use of energy in the core of the Edge Computing components that shape this new era, and delivering the technology needed to promote these values; (2) Focusing on pan European cooperation to ramp up the capabilities needed to deliver these new components at a scale that can make a real impact. Europe does not have huge IT leaders so cooperation from a very early phase is key. All partners in the project participate in delivering key parts of these new Edge Computing components; and (3) Demonstrating the use of these components in key European industrial areas. Clear and early examples are needed to un-lock corporate and external funding to deliver on the promise of this very exciting project. 

The DAIS project will research and deliver distributed artificial intelligent systems. It will not research new algorithms, as such, but solves the problems of running existing algorithms on these vastly distributed edge devices that are designed based on the above three European core values. The research and innovation activities are organized around eight complementary and mutually supportive supply chains. Five of these focus on delivering the hardware and software that is needed to run industrial-grade AI on different types of networking topologies. Three of the supply chains demonstrate how known AI challenges, from different functional areas, are met by this pan European effort. The DAIS project consists of 48 parties from 11 different countries. The DAIS project fosters cooperation between large and leading industrial players from different domains

Contribution

The DAIS project is a big European project focusing on IoT and edge computing, which would be very strategic for Almende. Almende has just spearheaded an exciting new project called DAIS, Distributed Artificial Intelligent Systems, an Ecsel JU project with almost 50 international partners and a 33 million budget! 

Results

The goal is to develop electronic components that are: self organizing, privacy protecting and energy efficient carries of distributed AI. Improving the information access and the enhanced flow of efficiency what will come of this project, is what makes DAIS  perfectly aligned with our perspective on self organisation. The use of smart devices in home and office will be our centre of attention. Our own research is in network localization based on distributed calculation of information. We will also use Crownstone technology to test the use of 5G, low energy sensors and Ultra Wide band.
