ITI - Instituto Tecnológico de Informática
Instituto Tecnológico de Informática (ITI) is a Spanish private Research & Technology organization located in Valencia, Spain. ITI is a Competence Centre in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), established in 1994 by a joint initiative of the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (UPV), the Valencian Institute of Business Competitiveness (IVACE), and a group of companies from the ICT sector. ITI
is also the coordinator of the Data Cycle Hub (www.iti.es/en/data-cycle- hub/), which is the reference one-stop shop DIH in the Valencia region to foster data driven and artificial intelligence-based innovation. The objective is to bridge the gap between research and industry, specifically SMEs, providing innovative solutions and services that require advanced data analytics, automatic learning and artificial intelligence. The DIH has connection to all relevant stakeholders: industry, regional agencies, accelerators, Chamber of Commerce, education, providing a rich ecosystem of technological companies working on these fields.
ITI Research and Innovation activity is developed by a team of more than
190 technologists (researchers and technicians), and is focused on 6 main digital enablers around the DATA CYCLE, primarily Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, but also other key digital enabling technologies like Cyber Physical Systems, IoT, Cloud and High Performance Computing Platforms or Statistics Optimization (see figure). With a combination of all these enablers, ITI is providing solutions to different domains: a) IT industry, b) Manufacturing (Industry 4.0), c) Society (Health 4.0, Tourism, Cities, Buildings), d) Transport and e) Agriculture 4.0. All this activity confers ITI the possibility to give the following offer: Access to infrastructure and technology platforms, Access to specialist expertise on digitisation & applications, Collaborative research for Industry needs, Demonstrate best practices, Training and Education, Showcase technologies in pilot factories, fab-labs, Support experimentation in real- life environments.
ITI has been identified as European IoT and CPS competence centre within the I4MS programme and is participating in S3 Platform for Modernization of SMEs. ITI also provides a Big Data Space offering infrastructure, tools and data for research and experimentation with Big Data Technologies, which has been awarded with the BDVA i-Space Silver label and is a key infrastructure for the Data Cycke Hub, which has been recognized as member of the European Network of Artificial Intelligence DIHs (ai-dih-network.eu)
