Aarhus, Denmark, March 14, 2023 – Global master data management (MDM) solutions provider Stibo Systems has launched a PhD study for automated exchange of environmental, social and governance (ESG) data with Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
The three-year industrial PhD program is sponsored by Innovation Fund Denmark. The research will be done in collaboration with DTU, which currently ranks third among the best “Engineering and Technology” universities in the world according to Research.com, just after Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stanford University. The joint research will be supervised by both the university and Stibo Systems.
The study focuses on schema matching, or how to get a machine to automatically categorize items as they cross system boundaries, automatically map the attributes and automatically transform from the original attribute values to the legal values of the “receiving” data structure. The research will be grounded in disciplines such as schema matching and type providers and will be leveraging machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver the expected results.
“Our goal is for the results of this study to be applicable to connect systems automatically for automated data exchange,” said Stibo Systems Director, Product Innovation, Jesper Grode, who will be supervising the research. “We’re excited to create this opportunity together with DTU to explore automated data exchange in a way we hope will ultimately benefit our customers and partners.”
