Distributed artificial intelligent systems, edge devices

Project description 

The DAIS project aims to research and deliver distributed artificial intelligent systems. As such, it does not research new algorithms, but solves the problems of running existing algorithms on vastly distributed edge devices, designed based on three core design principles:

  1. delivering technology and components protecting the values of self-organization, privacy by design and low use of energy,
  2. focusing very early on pan European cooperation to ramp up the capabilities needed to deliver these new components
  3. demonstrating the use of these components in three key industrial areas for Europe (i.e. digital industry, digital life, and transport and smart mobility).

The research and innovation actions in DAIS are organised around eight different supply chains. Five of these focus on delivering the hard and software that is needed to run industrial-grade AI on different type of networking topologies. The remaining supply chains demonstrate how known AI challenges, from different functional areas, are met by this pan European effort.
