In an era where AI’s potential to reshape the global socioeconomic landscape continues to dominate mainstream discourse, the GLACIATION project, and in particular University College Cork will host the Harmonising Privacy and AI across the Cloud-Edge Continuum Conference. Taking place at University College Cork on March 12th, and with online participation possible through hybrid modalities, this event aims to explore the interaction between privacy and AI through a poster session, keynote speeches, and an expert-...

The recent UNESCO Global Forum on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence, convened in Kranj, Slovenia, was an important platform for discussion against the backdrop of AI's exponential rise in usage across various public and private sectors. The Ministerial session was of particular interest for the GLACIATION project, as many speakers highlighted the imperative of balancing between leveraging AI's societal benefits and upholding ethical standards in its application.

The Forum represents an important platform for countries at various stages of AI adoption to engage in meaningful...

With climate change and environmental concerns the most pressing existential issue of the modern era, initiatives like GLACIATION and other CORDIS Horizon Europe Projects are pioneering solutions to minimise data-related environmental impact.

GLACIATION, at the forefront of innovation, uses a cutting-edge metadata fabric spanning edge-core-cloud architecture. Leveraging AI for data optimisation, GLACIATION aims to reduce the environmental impact of data movement and operations while maintaining privacy compliance. By optimising analytics locations, GLACIATION reduces carbon emissions...

ENG has contributed to the construction of the GLACIATION architecture that features a modular design emphasising flexibility, extensibility and seamless integration of new components across the edge-cloud continuum. Key macroblocks collectively address critical aspects of the project and each macroblock plays a specific role in achieving the objectives that will be elaborate further below. These macroblocks and their interaction will ensure intelligent data movement, robust security, energy efficiency, and effective orchestration.

Navigating through data extraction,...

In the ever-evolving digital landscape, the recently ratified Interoperability Act stands as a critical piece of legislation set to impact Europe's digital space, including the GLACIATION project. The legislation is part of the EU's commitment to digital transformation, aligning with the twin transition goals of the EU: green and digital. Specifically, the Interoperability Act aims to foster cross-border cooperation among EU public administrations and their respective digital systems to streamline and improve public services for citizens and businesses alike.

Interoperability is key...

In the rapidly evolving realm of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data governance, significant policy challenges arise. These challenges are particularly prominent in relation to governance mechanisms currently being developed at the European level. These mechanisms encompass open source development, standards, and regulatory sandboxes, all of which are critical components in the broader landscape of AI and data governance.
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) face unique challenges in protecting user data in today’s digital landscape. This article explores the hurdles SMEs encounter and proposes concrete solutions to address them. It ultimately advocates that by solving these issues, SMEs can enhance data protection practices and build trust with customers, establishing themselves as responsible custodians of sensitive information in an increasingly data-driven world.
Data sovereignty is crucial in the rapidly evolving digital landscape. This article explores its importance and the EU's policy efforts to promote it through a robust data protection framework. It highlights the need for strong data control and protection measures and emphasizes the role of data interoperability.
