Research & Development

Fog computing is emerging as a new paradigm for powering novel applications and services through the provisioning of a distributed computing infrastructure able to process data closer to users. Major leaders in the ICT sector (like Cisco, Huawei, IBM etc.) are heavily investing into this innovation line, which is expected to have a major impact on several application domains, in much the same way the cloud is impacting them now.

FogGuru is funded by the European Commission under the H2020 MSCA programme, and it will deliver an industrial doctoral programme specifically focussed on fog computing. U-Hopper in particular will train two PhD students on the design and engineering of scalable data pipelines for fog computing infrastructures and fog-enabled interactive services for smart city.

MemEx is a project funded by the Province of Trento and developed in partnership with Dimension Srl, FBK and University of Trento, which aims at developing technologies for supporting tourists during all phases of their travel experience.

MemEx offers an automated conversational service, called chatbot, which can be used by tourism operators (hoteliers and DMOs) to interact with tourists.

The solution is integrated with profiling and analytics systems that allow the optimization and personalization of the automated interaction and of marketing upselling campaigns.

The project is carried out within the ERDF Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020 of the Autonomous Province of Trento, and it is co-financed by the European Union through the European Fund for Regional Development, for the Italian state and the Province of Trento.

The Content Personalisation Network (CPN) is an European project funded under the H2020 programme, whose aim is to build a platform for delivering personalized digital news to readers while overcoming current issues in the online media scenario such as the filter bubble and the cold start problem.

Tapoi, our proprietary customer intelligence technology, will be used to understand users’ interests and personalize the online experience with targeted and, at the same time, balanced content to ensure complete visibility of diverse news categories.
