New Research Project PAIRS Relies on IDS  

Aug 13, 2021 | News

The Corona pandemic has shown that politics and business lack reliable recommendations for dealing with crises. Under the consortium leadership of IDSA member Advaneo, a research project is now being launched that will make it possible to forecast the effects of crisis situations with the help of trusted data sharing based on the IDS standard.

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 reactions of various 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.

Secure data sharing with IDS

PAIRS solves these challenges with a decentralized platform architecture that allows access to 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 sharing 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 will be fed to the PAIRS platform anonymously.

Advaneo has been a member of the International Data Space Association (ISDA) since 2016 and has pioneered IDS-compliant IT solutions that are now market-ready after more than five years of development, enabling rapid integration into the emerging GAIA-X infrastructure. 

The research project PAIRS is funded as an AI lighthouse project by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). Further information can be found at:
