InforSense Ltd announced that the Science and Technology Commission of the Shanghai Municipality (STCSM) has licensed the InforSense Knowledge Discovery Environment (InforSense KDE) to build the Shanghai Public Infrastructure for Research and Development Service. The goal of this ambitious project is to provide a city-wide infrastructure for sharing and exploiting scientific information contributed by industry and research organizations across the Shanghai Municipality. The result will be an advanced Knowledge Grid for Shanghai, accessible by thousands of users and encompassing a variety of scientific domains from food, agricultural, chemistry and pharmaceutical research to manufacturing.
The announcement was made during the launch of the UK-China Partners in Science campaign in Shanghai yesterday. At the launch ceremony, Lord David Sainsbury of Turville, UK Minister for Science and Innovation described this achievement by InforSense as an outstanding example of a successful UK-China collaboration.
"InforSense is the only supplier to offer such a highly open, flexible and scalable integrative informatics environment," commented Yixue Li, general project leader of the Shanghai Public Infrastructure for Research and Development Service, STCSM. "This is the initial step to fulfill our vision of delivering automated integration, analysis and interpretation of diverse data, effectively exploiting domain knowledge for the benefit of our entire scientific and technical community."
"The Shanghai Public Infrastructure for Research and Development Service is China's flagship infrastructure for scientific informatics. Indeed, Shanghai is pioneering the public availability and consumption of scientific research information using Grid computing technology," commented Yike Guo, CEO at InforSense. "Their selection of InforSense technology highlights our proven ability to provide robust infrastructures for large-scale integrative information analysis and knowledge delivery."
