Zoo & Phytoplankton EOV Products: Big data and machine learning methods to enhance biodiversity data

This demonstrator will compile and process several data resources that are available under different European marine networks, data systems and research infrastructures and apply big data analysis and machine learning (e.g. neural networks) methods to create fit for purpose data products, using an open transparent methodology that runs in the Blue Cloud. Its focus is on biological Essential Ocean Variables (EOV’s) on plankton.
