LivLab (http://livlab.unicooptirreno.com) is a living lab created by Telecomitalia in partnership with Unicoop Tirreno, CNR and Fondazione Bruno Kessler.
For Telecomitalia, the project involves JOL SKIL of Trento, the JOL WAVE of Catania, and the Future Centre.
The living lab started on 10.04.2015 (see press release ) and will involve 100 members equipped with Android smartphone in Livorno for a year.
The mission of LivLab is (i) developing of the model of the Personal Data Store, which the user sees as the only protagonist of the management of their personal data (in this case the data from the sensors on board the smartphone and expenditure with membership card) and (ii) the development of innovative personal data driven in the retail grafted onto the platform of Personal Data Store developed as part of the living labs of Trento.
Members investigators are already using the ‘application LIVLAB charges, developed by JOL WAVE, smart management of expenditure incurred by membership card, but it is already expected by the year the release of 2 new services made by EMS circuit EIT and in the course of the co-design of the evoluzionu LIVLAB charges with which they will try to integrate the diversity of personal information with the aim of providing a truly personalizzato.logo_livlab
The success of the Mobile Territorial Lab of Trento has shown that the model of living labs Federated accelerates the innovation cycle and time-to-market services developed through an ongoing engagement, the early stages, and the user of a business partner (in this case Unicoop Tirreno) interested in this new way of building services. Moreover, the involvement of academic partners (CNR and FBK, if LivLab) also allows you to experimentally verify the results produced by these research centers in realistic application contexts.
The Mobile Territorial Lab (MTL) project has been created by Telecom Italia SKIL Lab, in cooperation with Telefónica I+D, the Human Dynamics group at MIT Media Lab, the Institute for Data Driven Design (ID³) and Fondazione Bruno Kessler, and with contributions from Telecom Italia Future Center. The project aims at creating an experimental environment to push forward the research on human-behavior analysis and interaction studies of people while in mobility. MTL aims at exploiting smartphones’ sensing capabilities to unobtrusively and cost-effectively access to previously inaccessible sources of data related to daily social behavior (location, physical proximity of other devices; communication data (phone calls and SMS), movement patterns, and so on. The Mobile Territorial Lab (MTL) in Trentino is the first of a network of living labs and aims at fostering mobile phone related research activities with real people on a very responsive territory. This includes the involvement of a significant number of committed users with the goal of having a continuous and active user base to interact with and cutting down the experimentation setup costs. A continue and active user base equipped with smartphones, enabling users to access (from everywhere) online services and to collect personal or contextual information from the integrated sensors, represents a valuable and unique sample for investigating new paradigms of Personal (Big) Data management and novel Personal Data-driven services.

Toward a new model for personal data management: from data protection to data control and exploitation
Ubiquitous sensing is nowadays reality and it has gone largely beyond the widespread adoption of smartphones among a large majority of the consumers. Ubiquitous computing, in fact, is rapidly broadening its boundaries, leveraging on continuously increasing sensing opportunities offered by modern, low-cost technologies (ranging from wearable/body sensors to smart homes, vehicles and other devices empowered with rich sensing capabilities). These leaded to the generation and collection of a previously unimaginable quantity and variety of Personal Data (PD), which have enriched everyone’s digital footprint and has become the core of digital services and mobile applications. Smartphones capabilities of collecting contextual information and of ensuring connection to the network while in mobility, moreover, has further pushed the success of social networks applications andthe digitalization of business/personal services, chich have resulted in a tremendous and continuous production of PD.
The 16th of March 2016, more than 50 students from the High School ITS Malignani of Udine, which study telecommunications, visited Padova’s TIM datacenter.
They may be the technicians, engineers or data scientists of the future. It is important to put them in contact with the real world of telecommunication giving some evidence of the nature of the real work. Different speakers presented different environments of this particular area of TI. What is a data center? Which kind of security is needed in such environment? Which kind of data are stored in the data center? And finally what TI can do with its own data collected, stored and processed in the data center?
Event dedicated to the broad subject of Information and Communication Technology, promoted by the University of Trento’s DISI (Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science) and Fondazione Bruno Kessler.
TIM will be there, among many other companies, to share our internship proposals and job opportunities.
Registrations are open, book your interview!
Join TIM in EIT Digital’s European Trusted Cloud High Impact Initiative!
This Call For Participation initiative opens the opportunity for established SMEs and Scale ups from EIT Digital and ARISE countries to join the consortium. The SMEs can be either users/customers of or contributors to the Trusted Cloud services, which provide new functionality and technology. Specifically, we are looking for proposals to work directly with one or more partners’ technology offers in order to enhance the Trusted Cloud ecosystem. that Proposals should show a strong business case and kick-start the delivery of trusted products and services with high business impact.
TIM developed and distributed for piloting uses a novel Trusted Personal Data Management platform called “My Data Store” which provides a secure, cloud-based digital space owned by the user acting as repository for their personal information, and allowing the fully controlled exploitation of the data into added-value services. The goal is to provide consumers and businesses better tools and services to take greater control over the use of sensitive and personal data, at the same time enabling and stimulating the business growth with the design and commercialization of trusted innovative services
My Data Store is a Personal Data Store platform (PDS) providing tools for the management/exploitation tools of heterogeneous Personal Data, about one specific individual. Examples of such data included in My Data Store are:
In particular the My Data Store architecture supports developers in building trusted and transparent apps compliant with a user-centric personal data management model, where the personal data collected from the My Data Store subscribers are the enablers of an ecosystem of certified (trusted) applications exploiting the PDS capabilities of My Data Store by mean of a set of provided APIs. The APIs provide a flexible mean for collecting/accessing the users’ personal data in a compliant way with their disclosure preference (based on the data type, the periods, the quantity, the anonymization/ aggregation level, the application/services, requiring the information). They enable developers to an easily and flexibly integrated or access data sources from My Data Store, under the direct control of the user. This allows the developer to be exempt from privacy-management and storage/security issues. Moreover the security of the data is granted by the lower cloud services layer on which My Data Store has been built and enhanced, thanks also to the contributes of the HII partners and activities.
Target customers are SMEs interested in building value-added data-driven services for the consumer, or interested in the My Data Store features to build their own trusted applications. In particular we are also interested in exploring the B2B2C model where the SME supports the business partners in bringing into value for the Consumer the data provided by a Business third party, via the potentials of My Data Store and the possible enrichment of the other included data sources.
The TM Forum is a non-profit industry association for service providers and their suppliers in the telecommunications and entertainment industries. Members include telephone companies, cable operators, network operators, software suppliers, equipment suppliers and systems integrators.
TM Forum provides information and support to help its members with creating and delivering profitable services. These include industry research and benchmarks, technology roadmaps, best-practice guidebooks, software standards and interfaces, as well as certified training, conferences and publications. The Forum also provides its member community with marketing and networking opportunities.
Yearly the TM Forum organizes the TM Forum Action Week, an event where the previously mentioned companies can meet in order to check the state of ongoing projects and to find partners to start new ones.
The SKIL lab has been invited to bring to the TM Forum its experience in the organization of international challenges (like the first and second edition of the TIM Big Data Challenge) and to be asked if Telecom Italia could be interested in being part of the following initiatives:
1) The organization of an international challenge focused on Big Data with datasets collected from companies spread all over the world. The name of the challenge will be “Data For Climate Action” and will be led by the UN Global Pulse, a flagship innovation initiative of the United Nations Secretary-General on big data. Its mission is to accelerate discovery, development and scaled adoption of big data innovation for sustainable development and humanitarian action.
2) The definition and the implementation of a Multiple Privacy Preserving Platform. Develop and deploy an Open Algorithms platform based on private datasets for various use cases (i.e. NSOs, cities, health, etc.)to create and measure statistical indicators
─ A platform that runs on a private company’s “anonymous” data, in a secured way (i.e.: behind their firewalls)
─ using Open Algorithms to extract standard KPI’s and publish results in a responsible way
Besides Telecom Italia the partners involved in the initiative are Orange, Telefonica and the MIT. The picture shows a moment of private discussion among the partners durint the TM Forum Action Week.
The 2nd and 3rd of February at JOL SKIL a tutorial on precious data collected from Telecom Italia (as well as every Telco in the world) – Call Details Record – and the techniques/best practices to extrapolate meaningful information out of it has taken place. Among the participants other experts in the innovation environment inside Telecom Italia but also consultants that help Telecom Italia to get the best out of these data. The growing interest in Big Data and the data driven mindset to develop services and solutions makes this important resource, which has been the “playfield” of the JOL SKIL in the last years, a goldmine for some other company’s areas where it was remained still unexplored.
Spreading knowledge and analysis technique to maximize the use of such asset inside the company while promoting a mindset change towards a data driven approach in different areas of research and developments from Smart Cities to IoT or wellbeing unleash great opportunities for ideas creation and both international/local collaborations.
Just after two days, where the main concepts for both understanding the resource and for obtaining information out of it, many where enthusiast and expressed new ideas or got insights about how this resource could be used for improvement in some already started project.
