SixSq announces Horizon Europe project involvement; adds new marketing manager

SixSq, which provides an edge-to-cloud management platform and application marketplace, has recently announced its involvement in three Horizon Europe projects. The projects will help lead the way for enterprises to see the application of edge computing to a variety of markets ranging from agriculture to transportation.

SixSq has received funding from Sefri, a Swiss government agency, and will collaborate with European technology experts to enhance its software and services. The Horizon Europe projects will span three years and focus on computer architecture from edge to cloud, with use cases across various sectors.

One of the projects, ICOS, is designing an AI-powered continuum that is secure, open, adaptable and technology-agnostic. It will be tested through four use cases in the agriculture, multimedia systems, railway infrastructure monitoring and energy management fields.

Meanwhile, the EXTRACT project involves building a data-mining platform for extreme data, with two use cases: personalized evacuation routing in emergencies and the other transforming large volumes of raw radio telescope data into high-quality datasets to be used across 15 scientific domains.

Lastly, ACES is developing an edge-to-cloud framework that can autonomously manage workload placement and service, resource management, data management and policy management through AI capabilities. SixSq says its involvement in these projects is a testament to its commitment to delivering innovative solutions to customers.
