Research Areas

Traffic

Traffic

Advances in collection and processing of traffic-related data enable new applications and services ranging from improved situation awareness for individual drivers to monitoring of road conditions and optimization of larger-scale traffic flows. D2I explored the opportunities from several angles, including technology, user experience and business models.

Multimedia

Multimedia

Easier access to vast amounts of storage capacity and computing power is bringing new players into image and video search. D2I developed a specification for a modular architecture and experimented with several prototype applications. In addition, foundational work was done in context-aware adaptation and scalable cloud-based data stores.

Security

Security

Apart from the necessity of protecting systems and data from hacking and unauthorized access, information technology can provide solutions for improved security across a broad range of domains. D2I worked on automatic classification of web content, reporting and management of safety and security incidents, and estimation of terrain traversibility from geographical data.

Industry

Industry

Big Data holds great promise for industrial enterprises as an enabler of operational efficiency and innovation. D2I developed solutions for monitoring, performance analysis, testing, simulation, and predictive maintenance of industrial machines and systems. The integration challenges of real-world deployments were mitigated through improvements in metadata management.

Customer Intelligence

Customer Intelligence

Text in social and editorial media contains information of unquestionable value for businesses, but utilizing it effectively is difficult without advanced tools. D2I built scalable automation for analysis of customer attitudes and recognition of business-relevant events. The other major topic in this research area was WiFi positioning and indoor customer analytics.

Bewell

Bewell

Demographic ageing is both an important societal challenge and a major business opportunity. D2I developed services, technology and business models to improve quality of life at the individual level and reduce costs of tax-funded health and social care. Another related research topic was the utilization of Big Data for large-scale improvement of the Nordic pension system.

Forest Big Data

Forest Big Data

Better data enables more efficient and higher quality planning and operations in the entire wood supply chain. D2I built the foundations for the next generation forest resource management system in Finland. Connecting a wide network of public and private actors, the system aims to improve the competitiveness of the forest industry and increase the value added of the products.
