We participate in research projects with prominent academic institutions and make publications and presentations in major conferences all over the world
We have been key members of the aquaSmart project, the first R&D project aiming to provide aquaculture smart and open data analytics as a service. aquaSmart will be an innovative cloud platform, accessible by all the fish farming community, to support smarter decisions, better production and efficient management.
aquaSmart results will help aquaculture companies to perform practical data mining and get actionable results. It will help producers to reveal how the environment, fish feeding, production strategies and management practices affect the production. The data mining will be based on state-of-the-art machine learning methods like neural networks, Bayesian graphs and similar techniques. However, the project goes much further: through the availability of multi-lingual Open Data, companies will be able to compare their findings with the ones of similar companies, with full respect to the confidentiality and privacy of their corporate data.
The project will also produce training material for data analytics in aquaculture, a certification mechanism. It is working together with ISO TC184/SC4 and CEN to deliver a CEN workshop standards guideline document to promote a uniform understanding for Big Data based solutions in the Aquaculture sector.
aquaSmart had been funded by the H2020 program. It is based in the real world, addressing actual problems that aquaculture companies face and is run by a skilled and experienced consortium including top research institutes, a major player in the aquaculture IT sector and three highly innovative aquaculture companies.
