Impro­ved cri­sis manage­ment with data

No need for „for­gi­ving“ and „jud­de­ring“

Last year, Jens Spahn spoke of the likeli­hood of having to ask for a lot of for­gi­ve­ness after the pan­de­mic. Shortly the­re­af­ter, he descri­bed the start of the vac­ci­na­tion cam­paign last Decem­ber as jud­de­ring. Two state­ments that pre­cisely sum­med up the dilemma of poli­tics, busi­ness and society in having to make quick decisi­ons in cri­sis situa­tions. There is a lack of reli­able recom­men­da­ti­ons for action for spe­ci­fic sce­n­a­rios in order to be able to reli­ably manage cri­sis pro­ces­ses. Under the con­sor­tium lea­ders­hip of Düs­sel­dorf-based Adva­neo GmbH, a rese­arch pro­ject is now being laun­ched that will make it pos­si­ble to fore­cast the effects of cri­sis situations.

The solu­tion: Data-dri­ven cri­sis management

In the PAIRS (Pri­vacy-Aware, intel­li­gent and Resi­li­ent Cri­sis Manage­ment) pro­ject, an open data struc­ture is being deve­lo­ped to anti­ci­pate both the initial cri­sis event and the respon­ses of dif­fe­rent actors using AI hybrid tech­no­logy in a cross-domain data space. To effec­tively sup­port cri­sis manage­ment with arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI), the app­li­ca­ti­ons being deve­lo­ped must cor­rectly cap­ture the evo­lu­tion of cri­sis situa­tions. This invol­ves over­co­m­ing the fre­quent lack of data and kee­ping exis­ting data con­stantly up to date, all while main­tai­ning data pri­vacy and sovereignty.

PAIRS sol­ves these chal­len­ges with a decen­tra­li­zed plat­form archi­tec­ture that allows access to a wealth of rele­vant data while gua­ran­te­eing data pri­vacy. Initi­ally, data sources from eco­sys­tems such as the Euro­pean cloud infra­st­ruc­ture GAIA‑X and other domain-rele­vant data infra­st­ruc­tures are built up and made acces­si­ble via open­PAIRS sol­ves these chal­len­ges with a decen­tra­li­zed plat­form archi­tec­ture that allows access to a wealth of rele­vant data while gua­ran­te­eing data pri­vacy. First, data sources from eco­sys­tems such as the Euro­pean cloud infra­st­ruc­ture GAIA‑X and other domain-rele­vant data infra­st­ruc­tures are built and inte­gra­ted via open inter­faces. Secure data exchange is ensu­red by using Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces (IDS) stan­dards. In a fur­ther step, users will be sup­por­ted in selec­ting the best pos­si­ble response stra­tegy. The selec­ted response actions of the indi­vi­dual actors are fed anony­mously to the PAIRS plat­form. Inter­faces inte­gra­ted.

AI-Light­house pro­ject of the BMWi

The rese­arch pro­ject is fun­ded as an AI light­house pro­ject by the Ger­man Federal Minis­try for Eco­no­mic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) with appro­xi­mately €10 mil­lion. The focus is on the areas of pro­duc­tion, logistics and sup­ply chain manage­ment as well as health­care and energy sup­ply. The aim is to bring the pro­ject to mar­ket matu­rity as quickly as pos­si­ble so that it can be used throughout Europe and worldwide.

A string basis

The Adva­neo GmbH is the con­sor­tial lead of the rese­arch pro­ject, in which then other con­sor­tium part­ners are invol­ved: Fraun­ho­fer IPA, FIR e.V. an der RWTH Aachen, Deut­sches For­schungs­zen­trum für Künst­li­che Intel­li­genz (DFKI), Bun­des­an­stalt Tech­ni­sches Hilfs­werk (THW), Bisping Medi­zin­tech­nik GmbH, SICK AG, Tiplu GmbH, OFFIS e.V., IBM Deutsch­land GmbH, Uni­ver­si­tät des Saar­lan­des – Lehr­stuhl für Rechts­in­for­ma­tik.

All other basic infor­ma­tion can already be found in the infor­ma­tion sec­tions of this website.

Par­ti­ci­pate

PAIRS offers inte­res­ted par­ties an oppor­tu­nity to par­ti­ci­pate and share as app­li­ca­tion part­ners, while bene­fi­t­ing from data avail­able to date and sub­se­quent com­mer­cia­liz­a­tion after pro­ject completion.
