Imaging data and services for aquatic science


EGI Foundation
iMagine provides a portfolio of “free at the point of use” image datasets, high-performance image analysis tools empowered with Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Best Practice documents for scientific image analysis. These services and materials enable better and more efficient processing and analysis of imaging data in marine and freshwater research, accelerating our scientific insights about processes and measures relevant for healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters.
By building on the compute platform of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) the project delivers a generic framework for AI model development, training, and deployment, which can be adopted by researchers for refining their AI based applications for water pollution mitigation, biodiversity and ecosystem studies, climate change analysis and beach monitoring, but also for developing and optimising other AI based applications in this field.

EGI Foundation role in the project:

EGI is the project coordinator. Moreover, EGI leads Innovation, Exploitation and Communication activities in the project.

Expected results:

  • common solutions in data management, quality control, performance, integration, provenance, and FAIRness
  • contribution to harmonisation across RIs
  • iMagine Best Practice guidelines
  • bring contributions from RIs and e-infrastructures to EOSC and AI4EU.

Relevance for EGI:

iMagine leverages the EGI Federation resources, in particular the Federated Cloud.
