This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 779790
Deep Data Analytics has been selected to take part in the European Data Incubator (EDI), a 3-year project that offers around 100 startups the chance to solve data challenges set by major European corporates like Volkswagen Navarra, RACC motoring club and the multinational Sonae.
What is EDI?
EDI is an incubation programme run by 20 partners across Europe.
It gives the most innovative “Big Data” startups the opportunity to tackle real world challenges set by corporates across Europe, such as improving road safety in Barcelona or predicting fraudulent transactions in supermarkets.
Deep Data Analytics is taking part in EDI to solve the challenge set by JOT Internet Media: Temporal pattern recognition in searches on the web. Web search and the underlying user intent is highly volatile and influenced by a plethora of factors. Marketers are challenged in optimizing PPC campaigns based on sparse click data. To support marketing and budget decisions Deep Data Analytics aims to develop a deep neural net to detect non trivial patterns in searches on the web to gain impactful insights into user behaviour. To achieve this Deep Data Analytics will enrich the data provided with geospatial information and additional data sources to enable the Neural Net to recognize patterns in the web searches that would escape human attention.
Benefits include up to €100k in equity-free funding, mentoring, workshops, access to a free cloud environment, and the chance to connect with and be recognised by major European organizations.
Datathon in Berlin
Each year of EDI incubation process is divided into three progressive phases, in which only the best startups pass to the next level: ‘Explore’, ‘Experiment’, ‘Evolve’.
On 17 and 18 October, Deep Data Analytics will travel to Berlin with 30 other startups for the first ‘Explore’ phase. Here we will take part in a datathon, practice our pitches, receive €5k (equity-free) and meet face to face with the corporates. Finally, a jury will decide which 16 startups will pass to the next ‘Experiment’ level.
