November 4th 2020




We are excited to take part in the European Big Data Value Forum 2020 (EBDVF 2020) with a dedicated session on Wednesday 4 November at 12:00-13:00. Our session is called "Next generation smart mobility systems, leveraging extreme-scale analytics over a novel elastic software architecture".

In this session, we present the ELASTIC novel software ecosystem, capable of exploiting the distributed computing capabilities of the compute continuum of the smart city, while guaranteeing additional properties, known as non-functional requirements of the system: the real-time, energy, communication quality and security. We further discuss how this design will be adopted and tested in a real-life mobility use case aiming to improve safety, efficiency and maintenance of the transportation network in the city of Florence.
