  • From telecommunications to road traffic, from healthcare to the workplace – digital technology is now an intrinsic part of almost every area of life. Yet how can we ensure that developments in this field, especially those that rely on artificial intelligence (AI), meet all our ethical, legal and technological concerns? In a project led by the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS, and with the participation of Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), an interdisciplinary team of scientists from the Universities of Bonn and Cologne are drawing up an inspection catalog for the certification of AI applications. They have now published a white paper presenting the philosophical, ethical, legal and technological issues involved.

    Preventive security: Fraunhofer IAIS founded association »2E!SAC« for protection of critical infrastructure in Europe

    Press Release / April 06, 2017

    While earthquakes are raging repeatedly in Italy, Germany is affected more and more by floods. In 2012 there was even a volcanic eruption causing Europe-wide flying bans. Whether natural events, terror attacks, technical defects or human failures – catastrophes occur suddenly and knock out supply and transport routes. In an emergency, good training, quick decision-making ability and networked action decide about human lives and the amount of financial damage. In order to improve the protection concepts, a consortium led by the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS founded the »2E!SAC – Association for Improving Vital Infrastructures Resiliency in Europe«.

  • European project makes big data technologies easy to use / 2016

    “Big Data Europe” addresses societal challenges with data technologies

    Press Release / September 06, 2016

    Across society, from health to agriculture and transport, from energy to climate change and security, practitioners in every discipline recognise the potential of the enormous amounts of data being created every day. The challenge is to capture, manage and process that information to derive meaningful results and make a difference to people’s lives. The Big Data Europe project has just released the first public version of its open source platform designed to do just that. In 7 pilot studies, it is helping to solve societal challenges by putting cutting edge technology in the hands of experts in fields other than IT.
