Information Integration

METIS (Dependable Cooperative Systems for Public Safety)

Objectives: WP3 addresses ad-hoc information integration. Integration of information from various, semantically ill-aligned sources is required to enable the understanding of situations, tasks, information sources, and contexts, even across the boundaries of systems and information spaces, and to ensure its coherent retrieval and interpretation.

This involves the alignment of information for public safety, but also the alignment and use of meta-information about the environment, the system-of-systems configuration, sub-systems, components, and information flows and their reliability to support system-level reasoning about health, dependability, and possible (re)configurations.

The integrated use of meta-information for reasoning about global system status, adaptation, and reconfiguration is cross-disciplinary and new, and it will require tight links to the other WPs.
