The meeting was held by the European Commision in Luxembourg, and was a nice opportunity for both partners and reviewers to exchange thoughts and ideas about the future steps in the project implementation.

PROTEUS at the Digital Business World Congress (DES 2017)

PROTEUS was presented at the Digital Business World Congress (DES 2017), as part of the session “Boosting operational efficiency”. This session provided a multidisciplinary view in order to understand how new technologies can help to improve operational efficiency, define performance targets and align them with the business vision. PROTEUS was presented by Treelogic as an industrial use case on how big data technologies can support operational efficiency by enabling data-driven decision making in real time.

 

PROTEUS at the EDBT/ICDT 2017

Upcoming consortium meeting in Berlin (26-28 April 2017)

The next consortium meeting of PROTEUS is approaching. Partners will be meeting in Berlin, hosted by DFKI, next April, 26-28.

In this case, partners are meeting to discuss the progress until the third milestone (closing May 2017), which constitutes the main mid-project achievement. The meeting will also be used for the preparation of the interim review meeting, which will be happening in Luxembourg on July 5th.

PROTEUS presented at the Big Data Spain 2016

PROTEUS has taken the opportunity to present their results during the Internation conference Big Data Spain 2016. In this case, the talk Advanced data science algorithms applied to scalable stream processing was presented by David Piris and Ignacio García (TREELOGIC).

The public and program of the event brought together an interesting environment for fostering Big Data market opportunities as well as research intiatives. In addition, PROTEUS was also an active presenter in the poster's session organised during the breaks, where partners had the opportunity to network with attendees, including both industry  and research representatives.

Public events & consortium meeting in Bournemouth

A new consortium  meeting has taken place in Bournemouth, October 20-21 2016. The project partners are meeting each other to discuss the progress and advancements of the project, and defining the next steps.

At the same time, in the morning Oct. 2016, a public dissemination session has been organised. Both guests (Cloudera) and own (Treelogic) speakers have been invited to present relevant talks related to the field of Big Data research.

Workshop and Tutorial on “Large-scale Learning from Data Streams in Evolving Environments”

A workshop and tutorial will be organised jointly at the European Conference on Machine Learning and Principles and Practice of Knowledge Discovery  (ECML-PKDD 2016) which will take place in Riva del Garda, Italy in September 19–23, 2016.  ECML-PKDD is the premier European machine learning and data mining conference and builds upon a very successful series of 26 ECML and 19 PKDD conferences.

The workshop and the tutorial are co-organised by Associate Prof. Dr Hamid Bouchachia (BU) as part of the PROTEUS dissemination activities and will be focusing on large-scale learning from data streams generated by evolving non-stationary processes. The two events will discuss advances of methods and tools dedicated to process, analyse and learn from data streams.

All readers of this announcements are cordially invited to submit their work to the workshop and attend the tutorial.
