About the Project
Introduction of the project and main goals
Emission Models and Patterns through Machine Learning Analytics at Barcelona (PATRONS @ BSC) is a 5-year project funded by the Severo Ochoa Programme (GA SEV-2015-0493) awarded to the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. PATRONS @ BSC involves research on Time Series Modeling, Data Processing from Sensor Networks, Distributed and Edge Computing, targeting Environmental Models and Pollution Pattern Mining on cities. Also has the objective to maximize the collaboration between current research activities between the Earth Sciences and Computer Sciences Departments at BSC.
PATRONS @ BSC aims to discover the precise relations between different types of emissions, from road traffic to maritime traffic in coastal cities, environmental and weather factors, and the resulting pollution and air quality. The methods and tools used for such purpose correspond to data mining and machine learning, from Stream Mining to Deep Learning techniques, oriented towards distributed computing using frameworks like Apache Spark and distributed DataBases like HBase and HIVE.
