The Data Week is the spring gathering of the European Big Data and Data Driven AI research and innovation communities. The 2023 edition ¨Data meets infrastructure at the edge¨  took place from the 13th to the 19th of June 2023 in Luleå, Sweden. During the event, the participants shared knowledge and results, discussed topics of common interest, found synergies, built new collaborations, and identified new challenges and recommendations. Data Week is also a great opportunity to link the communities and their results to European policies and market needs and brings European initiatives and activities closer to local communities.

On the 14th of June, PREDICT-6G and VERGE, both EU projects supported by the SNS JU and funded under the Horizon Europe programme, co-organised the session “AI-native data management for robustness and sustainability”. In this session, the two projects alongside a very promising start-up (QBEAST), a well-known European research institute (Insight-centre), and corporation programme (Intel Ignite) elaborated on several aspects of what are the expected benefits brought by AI in different fields. 

Dr Valerio Frascolla, Director of Research and Innovation at Intel and PREDICT-6G Innovation Manager, ran the session and Prof. Antonio de la Oliva, PREDICT-6G Coordinator, gave the presentation “Determinism and Robustness as pillars of future production sites”, focusing on the main aspects of PREDICT-6G. “The workshop was very interesting. It has been a pleasure to confront our ideas with people from several industries and backgrounds which are not always aligned with our view”, said Prof. de la Oliva.

A panel run by Dr Frascolla was held at the end of the session, to answer questions from the audience and exchange points of view with and among speakers. Attendance of the session was people from industry academia, European Commission and other public bodies.
