DECENTER Project to Integrate IoT, AI, the Cloud, Edge, Fog Computing and Smart Contracts Tied Together with Secure Blockchain in ‘New Ecosystem’ for On-Demand Edge Computing
GRENOBLE, France – Oct. 25, 2018 – Leti, a research institute at CEA-Tech, today announced that its sensiNact Internet of Things (IoT) middleware will be the core of a platform under development in an EU-Korean project that will empower emerging artificial intelligence (AI) applications with on-demand computing at the edge of networks.
“sensiNact’s standard service-oriented approach provides loose coupling between the physical and the virtual worlds, which brings the necessary flexibility to deal with the dynamic and heterogeneous real world,” said Levent Gurgen, CEA-Leti’s senior expert in IoT. “DECENTER’s federated fog platform based on sensiNact will address the need to timely process the ever-increasing amount of data continuously gathered from the myriad of heterogeneous IoT sensors and appliances. It will be demonstrated in various scenarios during this three-year project, such as smart homes, smart cities, smart construction sites and robotics.”
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
