After requirement analysis REICOFIL work in WP3 on learning algorithms of prediction models and normal behaviour models. REICOFIL has already experience in behaviour model learning on their machines and they identified challenges. These challenges will be solved during the project. REICOFIL will provide a machine for a prototype (WP7). The developed techniques will be transferred, implemented and verified during pilot runs. The impact will be measured and documented.
