POTSDAM, Germany and ORLANDO, FL, May 17, 2016 /CNW/ - The SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando (USA) will see scientists from the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) demonstrate how analysing vast volumes of data can help visualize air quality at large port facilities. From 17 to 19 May, the Potsdam IT specialists will be attending the world's largest customer fair run by IT group SAP SE (stand 100) to present a software solution designed to enable Hamburg's port to track emissions at all times and thereby assists experts in minimising environmental pollution, for example. In addition to the project with the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) the HPI will also be presenting twelve other applications from its latest research on in-memory databases and new online learning formats.
"Every day, the port of Hamburg records around 1.5 million measurement readings from ship movements, traffic flows and environment sensors. Our software application enables these different data sources to be linked together. Furthermore, the vast amounts of data can be visualized in order to give a comprehensive picture of the port facility," explains Dr Matthias Uflacker, deputy chair of the HPI faculty for Enterprise Platforms and Integration Concepts. According to Uflacker, it will allow air quality trends to be accurately represented for specific time frames and regions.
Plattner as keynote speaker, presentations and projects
HPI founder and SAP supervisory board chairperson Prof. Hasso Plattner will give a keynote speech at the event, while HPI director Prof. Christoph Meinel will hold two other presentations on the challenges of digital transformation (Wednesday) and working with the openSAP and openHPI learning platforms (Thursday). On Wednesday, Dr Matthias Uflacker will speak about the latest research projects based on the main-memory database technology. All the projects will be exhibited at stand 100.
