BigDataOcean, big data applied to maritime industries

BigDataOcean aims to capitalise on existing modern technological breakthroughs in the areas of the big data driven economy, and roll out a completely new value chain of interrelated data streams coming from diverse sectors and languages and residing on cross technology innovations being delivered in different formats (as well in different states, e.g. structured/unstructured, real-time/batches) in order to revolutionise the way maritime-related industries work, showcasing a huge and realistic economic, societal and environmental impact that is being achieved by introducing an economy of knowledge into a traditional sector which does not operate in an orchestrated manner and is rather fragmented. This infrastructure will be combined with four strong pilots that will bring into BigDataOcean a huge amount of data (in TBs) in order to develop the largest maritime database as a resource of collaborative, datadriven intelligence. BigDataOcean will give participants the capability to upload both private and public resources of data, and interrelate them over public and private queries and diagrams. BigDataOcean envisions to become the solution that will disrupt the maritime business sector through the effective exploitation of cross-sectorial and multi-lingual big data towards innovative analytics, knowledge,business intelligence and service delivery. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 732310.
