Job Title: Junior Researcher Positions
The COMPOSE project aims at enabling new services that can seamlessly integrate real and virtual worlds through the convergence of the Internet of Services with the Internet of Things. COMPOSE will achieve this through the provisioning of an open and scalable marketplace infrastructure, in which smart objects are associated to services that can be combined, managed, and integrated in a standardised way to easily and quickly build innovative applications. COMPOSE will allow for novel combined management of object generated data (from the object data store) and real time streams. The user applications will be able to decide what kind of combination is required for each service, and will be specified using high level languages. Within the COMPOSE project, BSC will research large-scale data management for the Internet of Things, combining real-time object-generated data streams with historic data. All data in COMPOSE will be managed using a Key/Value model, from real time and in memory databases, to persistent data stores.
