NOUS will develop the architecture of a European Cloud Service that allows computational and data storage resources to be used from edge devices as well as supercomputers, through the HPC network, and Quantum Computers. NOUS will be an IaaS /PaaS cloud provider, harnessing edge computing and decentralization to provide leaps in Europe’s capability to process vast amounts of data.

ITML’s role

In the NOUS Project, ITML serves as the leader of the NOUS “edge component”, providing technical expertise in the respective field. Additionally, ITML leads activities with regard to i) introducing distributed architectures in a traditional cloud service and ii) developing a Federated Learning & Federated Inference framework. Moreover, ITML contributes to shaping the data economy and crafting essential use cases.
