Teaming up for Data Spaces in Europe

Today’s lack of a harmonised approach is still hampering data spaces to thrive, it is time for convergence to support the deployment of strong EU values based ecosystems for souvereign data sharing. Leading European initiatives and organisations announce their collaboration.

How Data Spaces can be Built: The Netherlands AI Coalition – Towards a Federation of AI Data Spaces

Large-scale AI deployment requires an adequate infrastructure for sharing data, both between and across sectors. As data is considered a valuable and potentially sensitive asset organizations require control and sovereignty on who may use their data, for what purposes and under what conditions. Based on an assessment of data sharing alternatives, NL AIC is currently developing an IDS-based federated data space approach for AI. In this session we describe the approach taken by the NL AIC initiative, provide a demonstration of the potential of IDS for distributed federated learning and address the main challenges to tackle.
