The goal of NEARDATA is to create an extreme data infrastructure mediating data flows between Object Storage and Data Analytics platforms across the Compute Continuum. Our novel XtremeDataHub platform is an intermediary data service that intercepts and optimises data flows (S3 API, stream APIs) with highperformance near-data connectors (Cloud/Edge). Finally, our unique Data Broker service will provide secure data access and orchestration of dispersed data sources thanks to TEEs and federated learning architectures. Our NEARDATA platform is a novel technology for data mining of large and dispersed unstructured data sets that can be deployed in the Cloud and in the Edge (HPC, IoT Devices), that leverages advanced AI technologies and offers a novel confidential cybersecurity layer for trusted data computation.
The goals of NearData are the following:
Creation of methods, fast storage, and communications infrastructures to communicate distributed computing power with scalable storage systems, allowing efficient distribution of datasets across the system.
Expand the analysis of metabolomics raw data and boost external access and efficient re-use of open data. Creation of federated and Hybrid distributed architecture and ensuring data privacy but also shared global computations.
Create generalised machine-learning models that can aid surgeons during surgery and allow video data to be analysed in real-time and with low latency.
