BDVA/DAIRO members put data spaces and trustworthy AI on focus at the IoT Week

Being an institutional partner of the IoT week, BDVA/DAIRO has a strong presence at the tenth edition of the event. The association members organize two sessions discussing data spaces and Trustworthy AI. BDVA/DAIRO community’s viewpoint is also represented by our members in variety of panels throughout the five-day event. 

This year, the IoT week theme is “Next-generation IoT for a sustainable Future” and the event starts with an opening session discussing the topic. BDVA/DAIRO president Thomas Hahn will join the panel with Pearse O’Donohue (European Commission, DG CNECT), Chaesub Lee (ITU), Juergen Sturm (AIOTI), Joann O’Brien (TM Forum) and Monique Calisti (Martel Innovate). The session is moderated by IoT Forum president Sébastien Ziegler.

On Wednesday, BDVA/DAIRO members Edward Curry (Maynooth University) and Tuomo Tuikka (VTT) organize a one hour session discussing the functional implementations of European-governed data sharing spaces under the title “Designing Data Spaces in Real Life”. The session maps, from the designer perspective, what is required for creating a successful data space and what kind of business perspectives and building blocks are needed.

Later on the same day, Sonja Zillner (Siemens) hosts a workshop with an aim of making the concept of Trustworthiness of Industrial AI more tangible. The sessions builds on approaches and experiences introduced in the recent BDVA position paper. Michael van Hartskamp (Philips) will introduce an use case demonstrating why industrial AI applications require trustworthiness. Ray Walshe (Dublin City University) joins the session with insights to AI standardization, discussing the importance of it for speeding up the adoption of trustworthy industrial AI.

Nuria de Lama (Atos) represents BDVA/DAIRO in the closing of the event. In addition to the data spaces and trustworthy AI, the BDVA/DAIRO member organization representatives participate on sessions dedicated for many relevant topics such as Cloud and Edge computing, security and international cooperation from the IoT perspective.

The conference programme is full of topics important for the big data value and industrial AI research and innovation community. The 5 day conference also taps into AI in IoT, standardization, data economy, data protection, data interoperability and many other hot topics – IoT Week surely does not run out of interesting content!
