On 11 May we presented the two reports prepared by the WG Standardisation:
High Priority Edge Computing Standardisation Gaps and Relevant SDOs
This report introduces an approach for the definition and identification of key edge computing and/or combination of IoT/IIoT, edge computing and cloud computing gaps in several initiatives. Based on the prioritisation of these gaps, the deliverable starts to address the work done within the relevant SDOs that need to cooperate in order to solve these gaps.
In the context of AIOTI, the synergy and integration of IoT/IIoT and edge computing is considered to be a part of the paradigm shift from centralised solutions to decentralised and distributed computing architectures, in which information processing is located close to the edge, where “things” (e.g. sensors/actuators, devices, machines and humans) produce and utilise that information, knowledge and related experience.
The purpose of this document is to reflect a structured discussion within the AIOTI WG Standardisation community and to provide consolidated technical elements as well as guidance and recommendations.

Computing Continuum Scenarios, Requirements and Optical Communication enablers
This report introduces Computing Continuumuse cases, requirements and KPIs on communication infrastructures, IoT and edge computing platforms. Compared to many current activities the computing continuum enable a more flexible allocation of compute and communication resources and workload placement. Many novel applications require rather stringent KPIs since IoT is more and more mission-critical.
The new system requirements include strong security, very high bandwidth, very low delay, and very high reliability. Depending on the use case and deployment scenario, various technology enablers are currently under standardization, including the F5G optical network architecture, novel approaches to compute, and securing networking and compute. For computing continuum platforms, high-performance secure computing together with optical communication is an ideal combination fulfilling the high-end IoT requirements.
The baseline requirements for high-end IoT are optical communication enablers that can solve these KPIs and requirements. The communication between the different location of a computing needs to meet that stringent requirements as well. Also, high-end IoT devices might be connected with optical communication technology enable a whole new application area to be explored and supported. For example, some use cases need very high resolution, high frame rate cameras as sensors that send uncompressed video for the lowest delay to AI-enabled analytics platforms. The analytics platform needs to react fast on the situation and eventually steer actors appropriately. The documents finally list a set of recommendations of the evolution of the current technologies for high-end IoT system running on computing continuum platforms.

At the end of this month, AIOTI has 207 members.
AIOTI Distributed Ledger Technologies Group published on 27 May a Report on DLT-IoT technological convergence.The convergence of disruptive technologies is driving society towards a fast and unprecedented digital transition, breaking the barriers between the physical and the digital world. Framing the complexity of this phenomenon requires a deep understanding of involved technologies and a clear comprehension of how the underlying building blocks could work together to build new platforms and real-world applications.
This report presents the AIOTI perspective on the convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Decentralized Ledger Technologies (DLT) exploring the opportunities lying at the intersection connecting the different layers of the two technological stacks to identify promising areas of integration and related use cases.
The analysis begins with the definition of two high-level technological stacks as a stepping stone to understand the characteristic of the underlying building blocks. Subsequently, the discussion will move to the identification of areas and topics of interest by means of a Convergence Matrix aiming to set a common ground of open research topics and application opportunities. Finally, to connect the theoretical analysis to real use cases, the most promising convergence’ topics will be selected and linked to the existing applications identified among the AIOTI DLT Test Beds.
The full report can be found here.
The report will be presented on a webinar that will be held on 6 July at 15.00h CEST. The webinar is open to all interested parties and can be joined for free here.
AIOTI published its views on the public consultation on the Cybersecurity Resilience Act on 26 May. The full document can be found here.

The StandICT.eu project would like to invite you to attend the 8th Walk & Talk Webinar “Emerging DLT Standards – Connecting the networks”, on May 5th, from 11:00 to 13:00 CET
Scope of the event
Blockchains and DLTs are foundational architectures emerging in both technical interoperability and global enterprise contexts. The expectation that distributed ledger technology can deliver peer-to-peer, trust-based services in the low-trust environment of disintermediated global digital trade is ambitious. The added expectation that DLTs also meet oversight, regulation and compliance requirements relating to multiple trade territories, nation state and federated contexts is game-changing. This is the context in which technical standards are being written.
The global perspectives presented here, lend depth and insight into the success, opportunities and barriers to blockchain and DLT acceptance. We discuss where we are on the roadmap to global, ubiquitous adoption. Are DLTs fundamental to the world wide web of global trade? Does applied game theory work in cooperative multi-party enterprise? Or is the Metaverse the Tragedy of the Commons write large?
BDVA DAIRO is pleased to announce that the registration for the Data Week 2022 is now open!
Data Week is the spring gathering of the European Big Data and Data Driven AI research and innovation communities. In Data Week, the participants share knowledge and results, discuss topics of common interest, find synergies, build new collaborations and identify new challenges and recommendations. Data Week also links the communities and their results to the European policies and market needs and brings European initiatives and activities closer to local communities.
The COREnect project is developing a 5G/6G strategic roadmap for future European connectivity systems and components (*). Two workshops are organised in June 2022 to discuss the various aspects of this roadmap:
Telecommunications and microelectronics: How should Europe (re)-act? – COREnect workshop at EuCnC 2022, Grenoble, June 7, 2022 (14:00–15:30/16:00-17:30 CEST). This workshop aims to present the key findings of the three COREnect Expert Groups to a broad ICT audience.

The Russian aggression in Ukraine has refocused international efforts on energy dependence and supply chain resilience. In this context, DG GROW, alongside DIGITAL SME and the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA), is looking for European businesses offering digital solutions that promote energy independence and sustainability. The submitted solutions will be collected in a catalogue, and a jury will select the best solutions, which will be presented in two workshops.
Through our initiative, we want to spotlight digital solutions and business models that can offer the most impactful solutions to become less dependent on oil, gas and input/raw materials and resilient within the global supply chain.
“We need to support SMEs to accelerate the digital transition actively. Through the “Get Digital” workshop series, we aim to ensure leading digital SMEs in Europe, Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia can use the Single Market to scale digital solutions that help all our industries, including our many SMEs, become greener and more resilient. Our Single Market is the best lever to promote digitalisation and help our industries to thrive in today’s global context,” explained Kerstin Jorna, Director-General of DG GROW.
“DIGITAL SME is proud to partner with the European Commission to support a sustainable digital transition. The joint “Get Digital” initiative will showcase the innovation potential of our SMEs, whose solutions can address Europe’s strategic issues, such as energy dependence and supply chain resilience,” said DIGITAL SME President Dr Oliver Grün.
