Andreas Wombacher and I got some subsidy to valorize some of the research results of the COMMIT/ TimeTrails project. Companies involved are Arcadis and Nspyre. The functionality of the proof-of-concept product can be summarized as

  • A back-end system for collecting, managing and summarizing information from external sources which includes the novel pre-aggregation technology from COMMIT/TimeTrails
  • A visualization component providing a unique view of aggregated information in a map-based application (Geographical Information System). It is geared towards supporting online decision making by providing interactive visualizations of the huge amounts of available information.

Besides the proof-of-concept product, we will be organizing and executing a few pilot projects with customers of Arcadis and Nspyre, develop product training material, and conduct several dissemination activities.

Thales managed to find partial funding for the TEC4SE-project (pronounce “tecforce”). The project is about developing an innovative control room for police and fire fighters. I’m going to develop a Twitter analysis component for this together with company ENAI.

FedSS (Federated Security Shield) is an ITEA2/CATRENE project in which I participate with workpackage on data cleaning. The Dutch-part of the funding has been approved. Hopefully the other partners also get the funding in their countries approved. When this happens, I have a PostDoc position available for 2.5 years.
