NTT DATA and TSSG launch collaborative research project on data analysis
Nov 09, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
NTT DATA Corporation and Telecommunications Software & Systems Group, or TSSG, have launched a collaborative research project on data analysis utilizing Big Data and Business Analytics in the smart grids field, starting in November 2012.
NTT DATA and TSSG will jointly focus on conducting socially motivated research, initially in the smart grids domain, which will have an impact for system stabilization, operational management optimization, and service improvement. The team will announce results of this collaborative research in April 2013.
NTT DATA and TSSG are embarking on a collaborative research project specifically to investigate system optimization and service improvement based on analysis of the multi-dimensional data generated throughout the energy supply system. In this collaborative effort, NTT DATA will lead the research in building reactive algorithms that autonomously adjust based on variable conditions, while TSSG will apply its domain knowledge in smart grid research and lead the M2M research component. Through this research, they expect to push the state of the art in the areas of algorithmic development using Big Data technologies and M2M communications in the smart grids domain.
The main objective of this research is to develop the data analysis technology which detects changes in status, and dynamically adjusts the corresponding data analysis model. In smart grids, it is necessary to react to fluctuating variables and accurately control the balance between energy supply and demand. These data analysis models can then be used for short to medium term energy prediction to enable all elements of the energy chain forecast supply and demand with confidence.
Dr Kitani, vice president, head of R&D headquarters of NTT DATA, said, "NTT DATA has been expanding partnerships with research institutes worldwide to explore advanced technologies and create new services. This collaboration in the area of Big Data and Business Analytics with TSSG will have numerous achievements from many industry led research projects providing solutions to real-world issues. In particular this partnership will be the first step for NTT DATA to extend our R&D capabilities into Ireland, one of the best countries to develop innovative solution."
