DS2 at the Forefront of Innovation in the World of AI Data and Robotics

Updated: Feb 27

On 22nd February 2024, the DS2 project participated in the ADRA (AI, Data and Robotics) launch event which showcased future innovation in the world of AI, data, and robotics. This online event was a fantastic opportunity to become acquainted with other EU projects and to showcase the work done by DS2 so far. The online event involved Adra-e and AIonDemand and the European Commission coming together to unveil the new tranche of projects funded under several Horizon 2023 and 2022 calls.


The event kicked off with a comprehensive introduction from the European Commission, followed by live presentations from both Adra-e and AIonDemand Platform representatives. Philip Piatkiewicz, Adra Secretary General introduced the ADRA organisation and its key aims and principles. ADRA aims to secure a future where Europe is a global leader on AI, Data, and Robotics technologies that address and plethora of world issues and to accelerate the growth of future technologies. Its method for achieving this is threefold:


  1. Secure Europe’s sovereignty over AI, Data, and Robotics technologies and knowhow.

  2. Establish European leadership in AI, Data, and Robotics technologies with high socio-economic and environmental focuses

  3. Reinforce a strong and global competitive position of Europe in the world of AI, Data, and Robotics


The highlight of the event was a series of dynamic 2-minute pitch video presentations from the 54 projects funded across diverse domains. This unique format allowed each project to showcase its vision, objectives, and impact in a concise yet impactful manner. Plus, the projects will be included in a joint catalogue to be disseminated both online and offline.


The DS2 project was featured in the Integration of data life cycle, architectures, and standards for complex data cycles and/or human factors, language (AI, data and robotics partnership) group alongside other like-minded EU projects namely: CEDAR, PLIADES, CyclOps, and NOUS. DS2 coordinator Juha-Pekka Soininen, together with technical manager and DS2 conceptor Stuart Campbell, delivered a dynamic and engaging presentation that gave a clear outline of the key aims and motivations of the project.

The key aim of DS2 is to accelerate the transition to a data-driven economy by addressing challenges and requirements related to complex data lifecycles. DS2 brings together experts from various fields across Europe to ensure smooth and secure data sharing, aggregation, and tracking, while respecting data owners' rights and adhering to European data regulations. The modular software infrastructure connects different data sources, facilitating efficient cross-sector data sharing with ease.

Using the Intersector Data Space Toolkit (IDT), DS2 enables seamless communication between data sources. The IDT Toolkit consists of a Broker for fail-safe network operation and various modules for executing complex data lifecycles, including filtering and labelling, with options for both automated and human-in-the-loop processes.
