Type: National Project

Duration: from 2013 Jul 01 to 2016 Jun 30

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: INESC-ID (Other)

DataStorm will focus on creating a critical mass of scientists and engineers for addressing the design, implementation and operation of the new wave of large-scale data-intensive software systems. These systems will collect and integrate data from heterogenous sources, public and proprietary, from which large and complex graphs can be derived. These graphs can then be mined for patterns, from which models, predictions and various forms of knowledge can then be inferred. With DataStorm, INESC-ID intends to strengthen key partnerships and maintain its leadership at the national level on massive data analysis, becoming an European reference institution with demonstrated competencies for addressing the petabyte-scale challenges of the upcoming calls in international research programmes. A significant effort will be dedicated to dissemination activities, bringing new researchers to large-scale data management and analysis though the development of advanced training initiatives, including open summer schools and workshops, complementing graduate courses and direct participation in research activities through scholarships.
