BIDAF is a five-year research project financed by the KK-stiftelsen. The project is carried out by researchers at SICS Swedish ICT AB, Halmstad University, and University of Skovde, Sweden. The overall aim of the BIDAF project is to significantly further the research within massive data analysis, by means of machine learning, in response to the increasing demand of retrieving value from data in all of society. This will be done by creating a strong distributed research environment for big data analytics.
There are challenges on several levels that must be addressed:

  • Platforms to store and process the data
  • Machine learning algorithms to analyze the data
  • High level tools to access the results
