Project annotation:
There  is  no  doubt  that  autonomous  systems and artificial intelligence (AI)  will  change  the  world  of  logistics.  Autonomous  systems and AI  will join  the  Internet  of  Things  and  robotics  as  being  the  three  most  important  innovative  trends  in  logistics after  2025. The ascent of artificial intelligence in edge computing and the accompanying ascent of cloud storage and computing has swept over Europe without any local winners and, at times, in clear conflict with the European way of life. The cloud paradigm is based on technologies that are dominated by American and Chinese companies. The commercial approach towards privacy of the American companies and the governmental interference of the Chinese companies makes Europe’s dependence these technologies undesirable. At the same time the demand for artificial intelligence is pulled from the current devices that roughly equal the capacity of a laptop towards devices that have a significantly smaller footprint but a much higher prevalence. The highest benefit of using these smaller devices is found when used very close to where reality is sensed or influenced. This calls for small, low cost, distributed devices. These types of devices makes using centralized architectures, such as cloud solutions, less logical and opens the door for a paradigm switch towards distributed thinking (for example peer-to-peer, mesh). This switch also provides Europe with an opportunity to catch up and provide solutions that show European values such as energy efficiency, self organization and privacy by design. This project builds a consortium that delivers a solution in each of the key application areas of which all smart, AI enabled, components are delivered by European members of the consortium based on the key European values named above.
