The Design Environment is a graphical user interface (GUI) with the aim of helping users to get in touch with the PHYSICS solution framework, providing the tools and a GUI to simplify the development, testing […]
The DFKI is currently using the PHYSICS platform to improve the reliability of a production plant prototype for selected scenarios (see Blogpost: Industrial Use Cases of FaaS: The basics you need to know). Besides the […]
Plant growth and production are the outcome of complex interactions between the plant and its environment. To setup the devices controlling the environment in the greenhouses with optimal efficiency, these interactions must be accounted for. […]
It is commonly known that Serverless Computing has emerged as an agile environment of alternate execution while having many inherent scaling capabilities. The Function as a Service  approach, aims to apply the serverless scope also in the way application logic is created, embedded and executed.
Personalized healthcare requires decision support systems that can help healthcare professionals to manage large volumes of patients.
The PHYSICS project aims to improve and extend the Function-as-a-service model paradigm. In order to achieve this goal it is not only necessary to develop and integrate different components with each other, but there is also a clear need to do it in an agile way with the involvement of several partners.
A pattern is defined as “a proven series of activities which are supposed to overcome a recurring problem in a certain context, particular objective, and specific initial condition” . Patterns have been a very useful […]
The requirements for data collections, sharing and processing introduce important considerations on the security and privacy aspects of data owners and their control over their data. While the needs for gathering, sharing, and processing data […]
An ontology is a formal description of domain knowledge that encompasses information about categories, entities, their relationships, and properties. This type of structured information representation follows the paradigm of semantic and linked data and allows […]
Function-as-a-service is an event-driven compute paradigm that allows to execute primarily stateless, and arbitrary code in heterogeneous cloud computing platforms. PHYSICS is a research project that seeks to enhance this simple FaaS model, some of […]
