Research + Development
INFER Project: data mining and analytics.
INFER is a major EU-funded project involving 25 academics from organizations in three different countries. This includes Evonik Industries from Germany, one of the world’s leading companies in the process industry; the highly innovative software engineering team at REC, and the Smart Technology Research Centre of Bournemouth University in the UK, an interdisciplinary and integrative centre conducting research in the field of automated intelligent technologies.
INFER stands for Computational Intelligence Platform for Evolving and Robust Predictive Systems and is a project funded by the European Commission within the Marie Curie Industry and Academia Partnerships & Pathways (IAPP) programme, with a runtime from July 2010 until June 2014. The programme will offer 23 researchers the possibility to cooperate across different sectors and countries in order to provide, absorb and implement new knowledge in a professional industrial-academic environment.
The project focuses on pervasively adaptive software systems for the development of an open modular platform applicable in various commercial settings and industries. The main innovation of our project is a novel type of environment in which the “fittest” predictive model for whatever purpose will emerge – either autonomously or by user high-level goal-related assistance and feedback. The system will benefit businesses relying on accurate ahead predictions of any type (e.g. customer behaviour, market conditions) and, at the same time, requiring an automated ability to react to changes in market or operational conditions.
