OSCAR at IBM Emerging Technologies and IBM Research led Consortium
2016 marks the tenth and final year for the Network and Information Sciences International Technology Alliance (NIS ITA) collaborative research programme. We recently showcased some of the key scientific achievements alongside great examples of the impact of our work at the UK Capstone Event.
This unique collaborative programme between leading UK and US academic, industry and government organisations was created to advance the fields of Network and Information Science and to build rich and deep collaborations between the organisations and individuals involved. The particular focus of the research has been on rapidly formed coalition teams working at the edge of the network in a high-tempo operational environment.
There were over 100 attendees with a diverse set of interests across the two days of the event, mainly drawn from UK government and industrial organisations.
Prof. Alun Preece and Dr. Colin Roberts from Cardiff University were in attendance, talking about their experiences in applying ITA research to the NATO Summit in 2014 and the Open Source Communication Analysis Research (OSCAR) Centre for UK policing that followed on from this work.
