HOBBIT project kick-off

HOBBIT, a new InfAI project within the EU’s “Horizon 2020” framework program kicked-off in Luxembourg on 18 and 19 january in 2016.

The main goal of the HOBBIT project (@hobbit_project on Twitter) is to benchmark linked and big data systems and assess their performance using industry-relevant key performance indicators. To achieve this goal, the project develops 1) a holistic open-source platform and 2) eight industry-grade benchmarks for systems of different parts of the linked data lifecycle. These benchmarks will contain datasets based on industry-related, real-world data and can be scaled up to evaluate even Big Data solutions.

Our partners in this project are iMinds, AGT Group R&D GmbH, Fraunhofer IAIS, USU Software AG, Foundation for Research & Technology – Hellas (FORTH), National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos” (NCSR), OpenLink Software, TomTom and Ontos AG.
