Real-time Edge Analytics

Real-time Edge Analytics And Predictive Modelling To Capture A Broad Range Of Sports-related Data And Trends (e.g., activities and contextual information), Critical In A Variety Of Application Settings.

RAIS fellows will receive a thorough "hands-on" research training as well as significant exposure to nonacademic environments through industrial secondments. Our rich set of network-wide events, including Interactive Online Seminars, entrepreneurship events, hackathons, workshops and conferences, will safeguard both fellows work as a solid team and individuals development as experts.

Research Areas

Distributed Sensing Infrastructure & Networking for Internet of Sports

This research area aims at designing a distributed and decentralized platform for efficiently capturing, monitoring, storing and sharing data from quantify-self sensors, mobile phones and other wearable devices. This research area will be the foundation of the RAIS infrastructure.

Security, Privacy, and Trust for Wearable Devices

Naturally, sensors and devices of RAIS infrastructure will collect, process, and store sensitive information of a very personal nature such as health signals, daily habits, places visited, people communicated with, etc. Thus, it is of paramount importance to develop mechanisms for protecting the integrity of both the devices and the collected information against what users might perceive as unauthorized use, which is the main goal of this research area. Furthermore, privacy protection mechanisms are explored, including novel algorithms for risk assessment, access control and policy enforcement, as well as algorithms for trust management and privacy preserving data sharing.

Predictive Analytics for Internet of Sports Knowledge Extraction

This research area focuses on developing real-time predictive analytics and feedback applications combined with the development of a wellbeing framework for Internet of Sports. It also explores the gender differences in long-term habit formation in exercise, revealing the gender aspects in social influence in exercise.
