Call it Europe’s Got Talent for geeks. Teams of scientists from across the continent are vying for a funding bonanza that could see two of them receive up to €1 billion ($1.33 billion) over 10 years to keep Europe at the cutting edge of technology.


The contest began with 26 proposals that were whittled down to six last year. Just four have made it to the final round.

La scienza che verrà: 10 anticipazioni sul 2013 | FuturICT In the News | Scoop.it

L’UE sceglie i due progetti bandiera da 1 miliardo di euro
Grande eccitazione per l’imminente scelta della Commissione europea dei due progetti bandiera che guideranno l’innovazione scientifica e tecnologica nei prossimi dieci anni, grazie a un finanziamento di un miliardo di euro ciascuno. La competizione si è aperta nel 2010 e i progetti giunti ora alla fase finale sono sei (non vi sarete mica persi i nostri articoli sui sei FET Flagship?). Alla fine di gennaio, l’annuncio dei due vincitori. Nanorobot che controlleranno costantemente il nostro stato di salute, miracolose applicazioni del grafene, assistenti robot, una grande simulazione del cervello umano ma soprattutto FutureICT, su cui si concentrano le scommesse: una sperimentazione su scala globale volta a simulare e prevedere le future crisi sistemiche della nostra società.

Complexity Science, Learning Analytics & Collective Intelligence

Complexity Science, Learning Analytics & Collective Intelligence | FuturICT In the News | Scoop.it
FuturlCT is a FET Flagship project using collective, participatory research, integrated across the fields of ICT, the social sciences and complexity science, to design socio-‐inspired technology and develop a science of global, socially interactive systems. The project will bring together, on a global level, Big Data, new modelling techniques and new forms of interaction, leading to a new understanding of society and its co-‐ evolution with technology. It will place Europe at the forefront of a major scientific drive to understand, explore and manage our complex, connected world in a more sustainable and resilient manner.

In this open access special issue of EPJST, you’ll find a fascinating set of contributions from European scientists who set out a 10 year research agenda within their fields: what are the really tough problems? There are also visionary position papers outlining the kind of socio-technical infrastructure that FuturICT will investigate, and a foregrounding of the ethical dimensions that human Big Data and Analytics always raise.

ETH forscht an der Zukunftsmaschine: Eine Milliarde von der EU?

ETH forscht an der Zukunftsmaschine: Eine Milliarde von der EU? | FuturICT In the News | Scoop.it

Ein neues Grossprojekt der Hochschule will nicht weniger als die ganze Welt erklären – und dadurch Katastrophen verhindern. 

Es ist nur ein kleiner Schritt für die EU-Kommission, aber ein grosser für die Wissenschaft. In den nächsten Tagen entscheidet die Europäische Union über Fördergelder von bis zu einer Milliarde Euro. Brüssel will damit ein wissenschaftliches Grossprojekt verwirklichen, das Europa weltweit zum Vorreiter machen soll. Forscher sprechen von einem Man-on-the-Moon-Projekt, weil es vergleichbar ist mit der Errungenschaft des ersten Menschen auf den Mond.

New Scientist: 2013 Smart Guide: Hot computing for a cool billion - tech - 26 December 2012

Six mega-projects, from a supercomputer brain simulation to a real-life SimCity on a global scale, are vying for two prizes, each worth $1 billion, 

 

It has been called science's X Factor: six mega-projects vying for two prizes, each worth a cool €1 billion.

 

In 2010, the European Commission put out a call for visionary computing initiatives comparable to the moon landing or the mapping of the human genome. Such ultra-ambitious projects would change the way we think about the world and ideally solve some of its problems, too.

 

Of 21 ideas submitted, six were shortlisted for further development. These include the Human Brain Project - an attempt to simulate the brain using a supercomputer - and a scheme to create a new generation of electronic devices based not on silicon but graphene.

 

The winners will be announced at the end of January. The prize money, from European countries and private firms as well as the European Union, will be spread over 10 years.

 

Our money is on FuturICT, a real-life SimCity on a global scale. It will give individuals, companies and governments real-time information about the planet, and run simulations to find the best strategies for dealing with issues such as climate change.

 

FuturICT was conceived after the 2008 financial crash drove home our lack of understanding about today's hyperconnected world. The civilisation simulator will be an open platform, accepting data on anything from social media and the stock exchange to climate models and political preferences. Stay tuned for the start of something big.

FuturICT and the European Balancing Act

December 03, 2012

 

Several years ago I was involved in an NSF grant proposal that focused on academic collaboration between geographically disparate scientific data sets. A handful of universities in the United States were part of the proposal.I participated on behalf of EMC and in concert with several other vendors.

The term “Big Data” was not yet in vogue.....
