NexusForum2023 will create a unique space for exploring together new, high-impact technological collaborations between the European research and industry ecosystems.

The rapid consolidation of the Edge Computing paradigm is having an extraordinary impact on Europe at scientific, technological, socio-economic, and geopolitical levels, as traditionally separated fields like HPC, Cloud, and IoT are now converging into a large and heterogeneous Computing Continuum that brings a number of amazing opportunities but also significant challenges.

NexusForum2023 is a unique physical event aimed at exploring technological synergies between the European Alliance for Industrial Data, Edge and Cloud, the EU companies and Members States involved in the IPCEI on Cloud Infrastructure & Services, and the community of research and innovation projects developed under the Horizon Europe programme.

Philippe Massonet is moderator of the Panel Discussion: "ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR THE COGNITIVE CLOUD": One of the high-impact research and innovation topics launched by the European Commission in recent years is the so-called Cognitive Cloud. In addition to reducing latency, improving security, and optimizing resource consumption, this panel discussion will look at how Artificial Intelligence is expected to enable serverless and highly-distributed edge cloud architectures to be more flexible and adaptable to the changing needs of IoT/edge application developers.
