VAVID: Data on a diet

The 2/2015 edition of the Fraunhofer magazine weiter.vorn published an article about the big data funding project VAVID. The joint project VAVID (German acronym for “Comparative Analysis of Engineering Measurements and Simulation Data”) is committed to cope better with the enormous volumes of data in engineering fields. There should be developed technologies by which measurements and simulation data can be analyzed and compressed intelligently. Massive amounts of data are accumulated for example in crash simulations. The VAVID project aims to efficient analysis and storage of data.

 

The project is being coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute SCAI. As a partner of the project SCALE is involved in allowing a comparative and automated analysis of large and continuously increasing amounts of data. This includes the effective storing of large-size data amounts and the avoidance of redundant data sets. The VAVID project started in September 2014 and is set to run through August 2017. The German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is providing 2.2 million euros.

 

Prof. Dr. Jochen Garcke, coordinator of the research association, summarizes the project’s aim as follows: "We develop improved techniques for data compression and new methods for data analysis, data management and interactive visualization of values. [...] This allows to reduce information to its relevant core."
