The research group is hosted by University of Pannonia (Hungary) and supported in the framework of the “Lendület” Program of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS) that is a prestigious grant for establishing new research groups in cutting-edge areas.  

Founded in 07/2017, the group is focused on rethinking and upgrading systems engineering and data science in the light of the fourth industrial revolution.  

The goal of the group is the development of new algorithms and open source tools to utilise the data collected by internetworking systems in monitoring, control, optimisation, scheduling, risk management, and product lifecycle management. This goal challenges present-day internet of things technology regarding the development software agent and advanced sensor fusion functionalities. 

We believe that algorithms tailored for 
  1. multivariate time series analysis, 
  2. software sensors and event analysis, 
  3. localisation and 
  4. model mining 
can result in significant progress in this field. 

The creative and integrated application of the resulted algorithms can bring in a new perspective to the integrated monitoring and structural analysis of complex systems and the utilisation of open and linked data. The full integration of these four subprojects is primarily important and ensures the strength and uniqueness of our approach.


The centre, therefore, aims to bring together the best technological expertise in systems-, data-, and network science, and industrial intelligence. 

As part of its mission, the Group will make the new and integrated solutions available to the research community and industry through its collaborations and training.
