Nice find, have tweeted them:
@HumanBrainProj HBP should build on the ‘globally distributed’ #SAFEnetwork utilizing your spare client resources maidsafe.net
Human Brain Project is part of the FET flagship initiative…
I’m particularly interested in the FutureICT project ‘A CERN for the Social Sciences’ (video)
FuturICT would create a “Planetary Nervous System” (PNS) to orchestrate a high-level, goal driven self-organised, collection and evaluation of Big Data generated from sources such as social media, public infrastructures, smart phones or sensor networks.
The aim is to create an increasingly detailed “measurement” and a better understanding of the state of the world. For this, the sensing concept used in the physical and environmental sciences would be combined with machine learning and semantic technologies and extended to social and economic contexts.
Getting a top level project like FET to utilize SAFE would be a boon.
