Smart Data Innovation Lab Launched

The Smart Data Innovation Lab (SDIL) was launched by key industry organizations and leading scientific institutions in Germany on 8 January 2014 at KIT. It offers a unique platform for close collaboration in order to investigate innovative smart data analytics enabling the extraction of new insights from big data.

The initial four strategic research areas are Industry 4.0, Energy, Smart Cities, and Personalized Medicine. Each area is driven by data innovation communities with selected members from academia and industry who offer datasets for analysis and share their experience in applying new analytical methods.

JSC, together with Bayer AG, will lead the research activities foreseen in the area of Personalized Medicine, and will also explore possibilities for participation in other relevant areas or complementary SDIL working groups such as data curation and tools & techniques.
