Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (ISMB) is a research & innovation center operating in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) domain.
Founded in 2000 by Compagnia di San Paolo and Politecnico di Torino, today ISMB relies on technological and process competences of around 150 researchers working in close cooperation with companies, academia and Public Administration. ISMB is organized in areas focused on core sectors of ICT that can manage the whole value chain, from basic technology up to its practical implementation (proof-of-concept) and consequent deployment.
In the project operates the mobile solutions area which is focuses on Intelligent Systems paradigm leveraging on the BigData and IoT domains. It aims to support the innovation of services, products and processes, realizing end-to-end solutions based on smart device applications (e.g. Mobile, Embedded or Wearables) connected to cloud-computing solutions which run smart data management and analysis paradigms including Artificial Intelligence or Machine and Deep Learning. The area manages the relation with several European working groups such as BDVA or GEO as well as the cooperation agreement with large enterprise such as Microsoft hosting the Italian Microsoft Innovation Center. The team combines the research attitude with the practical multidisciplinary experience that allow to foster the innovation in the value-chain of the data, starting from the data generation (i.e. crowdsensing, in-situ monitoring) going through the fusion with other data with the generation of knowledge and hence value.
