Together with our partners, we started working on our new research project “VANDA Visual and Analytics Interfaces for Big Data Environments”. The goal is to develop big data driven interfaces, which allow efficient access to strongly growing and differently structured data sets. The research work does not only involve processing of large amounts of data (volume) but also entails challenges in quality and speed of data processing.
The foundation of our joint research can be summarized in 4 V’s: volume, e.g. data volume in terabyte to petabyte range; velocity, e.g. speed, in which data is generated, processed and analyzed; variety, e.g. diversity, which comprises different data types, sources and structures, and veracity, which describes the correctness and authenticity of data. This makes it increasingly difficult to process information in real-time (back-end) or make it accessible to the user in a suitable form (front-end).
The project duration is planned from August 2016 until 2019. The research project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund. Project partners are:
- Technical University Dresden
- Mercateo AG
- Chemmedia AG and
- deecoob Technology GmbH
