The Industry 4.0 National Technology Platform was established under the leadership of the Institute for Computer Science and Control (SZTAKI), Hungarian Academy of Sciences, with the participation of research institutions, companies, universities and professional organizations having premises in Hungary, and with the full support and commitment of the Government of Hungary, and specifically that of the Ministry of National Economy.
The main, overall objective of the project is to develop the business plan for establishing a Centre of Excellence in Production Informatics and Control (EPIC) as a leading, internationally acknowledged focus point in the field of production informatics, management and control representing excellence in R&D&I.
In this project we address a new and very important issue: the observation of small backcountry wetland areas surrounded by different areas, hosting important species and delivering essential ecosystem services and biodiversity. Although these patches are small one by one, but together they can contribute to the wetland cover area with a very high rate – their protection and mapping is a need.
Our department develops a 2-camera vision system within the MTA-SZTAKI ISAAC internal project, which system can detect and track a small UAV in real-time on the Sindy aircraft. The system can also identify dangerous approaches.
MTA SZTAKI, EMI Laboratory has started a 24 month long, EUREKA international R&D&I cooperation project under the acronym: INTRO4.0 , on the 1st of April, 2016. Due to the international EUREKA project class, the national partners prepare cooperation based efforts, in this case with the German KIT, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, which acts also as the coordinator. Among the Hungarian partners, HEPENIX Research and Development Ltd. plays the national industrial coordinator’s role, and SZTAKI is the RTD academic partner.
In the framework of the several decade long successful cooperation between MTA SZTAKI and the MVM Paks Nuclear Power Plant Ltd., SZTAKI is providing independent expert assistance in the preparation and execution of the I&C refurbishment projects of the NPP. The most important tasks of the actual framework contract are the following:
The independent verification of the reliability-related documentation of the Reactor Rod Control System (RRCS) refurbishment project.
Started in January 2016, the EXCELL project (Actions for Excellence in Smart Cyber-Physical Systems applications through exploitation of Big Data in the context of Production Control and Logistics) foresees the collaboration of researchers from four European countries (Hungary, Germany, United Kingdom, Belgium) in the field of Cyber-Physical Systems and Big Data applications serving production and logistics networks.
STREAMLINE will address the competitive advantage needs of European online media businesses (EOMB) by delivering fast reactive analytics suitable in solving a wide array of problems, including addressing customer retention, personalized recommendation, and more broadly targeted services. STREAMLINE will develop cross-sectorial analytics drawing on multi‐source data originating from online media consumption, online games, telecommunications services, and multilingual web content. STREAMLINE partners face big and fast data challenges.
Our goal is to overcome the present state of the art (decision trees, logistic regression) in analyzing customer behavior and predicting risks for bank customers. We emphasize the deployment of open source analytics software. Our partner is OTP Bank.
