HSbooster.eu actively participated in the highly anticipated "Concertation and Consultation on Computing Continuum: From Cloud to Edge to IoT" event, held from 10-11 May 2023, in Brussels, Belgium. This event, organised by the OpenContinuum consortium in collaboration with the UNLOCK-CEI and SWForum projects and guided by the European Commission DG CNECT E.2 and E.4 Units, aimed to address the growing importance of the computing continuum in the era of cloud, edge, and IoT.
During the event, HSbooster.eu had the privilege to engage with 45 EU-funded projects, focusing on the convergence of cloud, edge, and IoT domains. The discussions highlighted the need for efficient management and security of services and data in the evolving computing continuum, driven by trends like the metaverse and the increasing demand for hybrid cloud and edge computing services. The importance of running data analytics and AI in the most effective and efficient manner across the cloud-edge-IOT continuum was emphasized, with a focus on reducing latency, ensuring data availability, and protecting privacy.
Advancing IoT technologies integrated with AI and machine learning was identified as a means to optimise communication and storage costs, reduce energy consumption, and deliver benefits to citizens and businesses. An open ecosystem based on open source and open standards emerged as a key enabler for unlocking the potential of the European industry and driving green and digital transformation while maintaining EU strategic autonomy. Such an ecosystem supports the technical and business convergence of the cloud, edge, and IoT domains, fostering innovation and competitiveness.
The Concertation and Consultation on Computing Continuum event served as a platform to address the challenges of fragmentation, bring together diverse communities, and leverage open source to pave the way for an open and inclusive society. With the European community of researchers and innovators growing in relevance, diversity, and impact, this event marked an important step towards realising the vision of a computing continuum as the foundation for Europe's technological sovereignty.
Overall, HSbooster.eu's participation in this event exemplified its commitment to fostering collaboration, driving innovation, and contributing to the advancement of the cloud, edge, and IoT domains within the European context.
