MANOLO: A new Horizon Europe project kicked-off!

MANOLO, a pioneering project funded by the European Union, just started its journey into AI world. The project’s kick-off meeting took place from February 8th to 9th, 2024, in Dublin, Ireland.

MANOLO aims to deliver a complete and trustworthy stack of algorithms and tools to help AI systems reach better efficiency and seamless optimization in their operations, resources and data required to train, deploy and run high-quality and lighter AI models in both centralised and cloud-edge distributed environments. Novel dynamic algorithms for data/energy efficient and policy-compliance allocation of AI tasks to assets and resources in the cloud-edge continuum will be designed, allowing for trustworthy widespread deployment.

MANOLO will be deployed as a toolset and tested in lab environments via Use Cases with different distributed AI paradigms within cloud-edge continuum settings; it will be validated in verticals such as health, manufacturing, and telecommunications aligned with ADRA-identified market opportunities, and with a granular set of embedded devices covering robotics, smartphones, IoT as well as using Neuromorphic chips.

The consortium, under the leadership of Ireland’s National Centre for Applied AI CeADAR, is composed of 18 partners across 8 European countries: Ireland, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Romania and Spain.
