Collaboration pays off between industry, academia and EUR4 million of funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program. The ALIGNED project rolled out five trial platforms showcasing its success in applying the latest big data research findings to solving the problems of industry. This interesting information came to us from in the release, “ALIGNED: Successfully Bringing New Big Data Technologies from Research Into Industry.”

The project is a good demonstration of the latest semantic technologies and how they can help create smarter legal information systems, provide better management of health data and help construct high-quality archaeological and historical datasets.

According to Dr Kevin Feeney, of Trinity College Dublin, who coordinated the project, “The Internet has made vast quantities of data available to everybody, but the size and complexity of this data is such that new methods and technologies are needed for organising and managing it and for integrating it with software systems.”
