We combine data analytics, artificial intelligence and semantic knowledge-management

The Data Analytics Center (DANA) at Fraunhofer FOKUS offers research and innovative developments of AI-based processing and distributed analysis of large amounts of data (Big Data & Smart Data). With our comprehensive domain-expertise we create a “Full Service AI and Analytics” offer. With knowledge-based AI and smart analytics-as-a-service, we focus on the real-time processing of data streams and combine previously separate technologies from the fields of data analytics, artificial intelligence and semantic knowledge management. Through the semantic and AI-based processing of structured and unstructured data, we support our customers in drawing conclusions from existing data sets and improving decision-making and processes with AI support.

The core of our offer is the agile and thereby iterative cooperation with our customers. In the training lab we provide our customers with a fundamental understanding of big data analytics, AI, semantic knowledge technologies and semantic data intelligence and their potential use cases. In the innovation lab together with our customers we deal with their specific issues and thereby develop innovative ideas and concrete approaches to solutions. By our rapid prototyping executed analytics-as-a-service offers, we can acquire, consolidate, analyze and process data for the customers. Optionally we offer to accompany our customers during the actual usage of the implemented solution. Via iterative feedback-analyses and evaluations, we identify possibilities for optimization in our test lab.
