ARIC starts project in the area of critical infrastructures

ARIC, the Hamburg Center for Artificial Intelligence (KI), is initiating a consortium project to protect digital and physical infrastructures in urban regions and make them fit for the future. The aim is to use key technologies such as AI, IOT, Edge, Secure Cloud and HPC to increase the resilience of cities and densely populated regions.

The interaction density in metropolitan areas is constantly increasing, so that complexity increases and ecosystems are becoming increasingly fragile.

In order to counteract this trend, new technologies are to be tested and implemented in this consortium project that have the potential to make critical infrastructures in particular more resistant to anomalies and increasing urbanization. Large IT companies (infrastructure providers), medium-sized companies, startups and research institutes from Hamburg and Germany are involved.

ARIC takes over the consortium management and coordination of the project.
