Horizon Prize - Big Data Technologies H2020-BIGDATAPRIZE-2017 Closed!


The objective of this inducement prize is to improve the performance of software for the forecasting of geospatio-temporal data (collections of time-stamped records that are linked to a geospatial location). The prize will reward a solution which improves existing methods in terms of scalability, accuracy, speed and use of computational resources.


The prize will be awarded to the application that best addresses the following cumulative criteria:

  1. Accuracy of the prediction, expressed as "root-mean square error" (RMSE) rank of the software
  2. Speed of delivery of the prediction, low use of computing resources: both criteria are expressed as the "overall elapsed execution time" (OEET) rank of the software
