MOG Technologies, the worldwide supplier of end-to-end solutions for professional media, today announces their participation in a new DataCloud project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme.
The objective of the DataCloud project is the creation of a novel paradigm for Big Data pipeline processing over heterogeneous resources encompassing, what has been called, “Cloud Computing Continuum”, covering the complete lifecycle of managing Big Data pipelines. This project will focus mainly on the Fog and Edge Computing markets.
DataCloud is coordinated by SINTEF, Scandinavia’s largest independent research organization, and will be running during 2021-2023. The purpose of this project is to be part of the discoveries and developments that are being made in technologies such as Internet of Things.
MOG’s contribution to the project will include the development of a new product – Automatic Live Sports Content Annotation (MOGSPorts).
Offering solutions for Live Media Streaming, the goal of MOG’s use case is to lower the production costs and enhance audience engagement and experience in decentralized crowdsourced live sports broadcasting by automatically annotating large quantities of media data from various sources combined with AI algorithms for adaptive monitoring and runtime operation.
“MOG looks at Datacloud as a way to develop exciting new digital media products based on the latest developments in big data and edge computing” – says Alexandre Ulisses, Chief Innovation Officer at MOG and Innovation Manager in the DataCloud Project.
Alongside MOG will be other partners from Academic Institutions such as the Sapienza University of Rome, the Stockholm Royal Institute of Technology, and the University of Klagenfurt, as well as companies from all over Europe: Bosch, JOT Internet Media, IEXEC, Tellu, Ubitech, and Ceramica Catalano.
Together, the partners will cover all aspects of the Big Data Pipeline cycle, from process discovery to simulation, deployment, monitoring and adaptation. DataCloud intention is to make this paradigm easily accessible to a wide set of large and small organizations that encounter difficulties in capitalizing on Big Data due to the lack of suitable processing capabilities.
MOG is excited to start working with such impressive partners and to start sharing the developments made in the project. More information about the project can be found on the official DataCloud website.
