Laboratory for the acquisition and “smart” analysis of complex data
The Smart Data Factory (SDF) offers consultancy and technology transfer in the field of data processing and data science. The offer is aimed in particular at companies and organisations which, together with researchers from the Faculty of Computer Science of the Free University of Bozen Bolzano (unibz), can develop innovative solutions for the collection, processing and automated smart analysis of complex, extensive and heterogeneous data.
As part of the support services for companies and corporations, IT experts from the SDF will analyse and test existing software with the aim of improving its quality and adapting the programs to current circumstances. For example, they will check the software architecture to prepare for migration to the cloud, evaluate software development processes and support the individual partner in planning special applications, tailor-made to the needs of the individual user. The service also includes scientific support for clients wishing to plan and implement prototypes of intelligent systems for the capture, integration, processing and automated analysis of data. These include for example recommendation systems, decision support systems and systems based on time-space data.
There are regular advanced training courses and consultations with freelancers and companies who want to bring their competences in information technology up to speed or to acquire expertise on current topics, such as monitoring and diagnosis of software systems, prototyping and development of intelligent systems or ontology-based management and analysis of data, processes and knowledge.
