Wow, do you think this is science fiction? It most definitely is not.
The ICT industry is playing an increasingly important role in the global economy. Europe is in the lead in developing different ICT components. But how can Europe be in the lead of developing digital technology?
Scientists have been struggling to efficiently use compute infrastructure to resolve scientific problems, spending in the end more time on hardware and operating systems then on their scientific research. But this is now over: the CloudBroker Platform has been developed to provide broad access to commercial clouds and supercomputing centers, allowing scientists and engineers to focus on their core research.
The outbreak of mobile Apps market has revolutionised the way we interact with information and services and provide new mobility and transport solution, where end-users can also contribute directly with real-time information (e.g. traffic events, congestion, public transport delays…).
It is a challenge to use familiar concepts to extract important information from large amounts of data, without the need for complex algorithms and a PhD in data science. New techniques can help transform data into information, which then turns into knowledge.
What a "smart" yarn can do for traceability, anti-theft or anti-counterfeiting protection.
Sentiment analysis has emerged as a new discipline whose aim is the computational treatment of opinion, sentiment and subjectivity in texts. Transforming how technology understands written content offers new opportunities.
Do you need to publish high quality Open Data (OD)? Do you want to reuse data for research, an article, an application or something else? The Open Data Node, a new open source platform supporting the entire process of Open Data publication, management and exchange, is what you're looking for!
The amount of data exchanged on Social Networks is truly massive. Facebook and Twitter, to take just two of many examples, each have millions of new interactions in any given hour. Analysing such unstructured and continuous data streams is a big challenge. The key is to find relationships between the different data items, and, fot this, graph technologies are the best solution.
Digital innovation hubs are ecosystems that consist of SMEs, large industries, startups, researchers, accelerators, and investors. They aim to create the best conditions for long-term business success for all involved. How do they do that? And how sustainable are these hubs?
The intertwining of different disciplines is not only beneficial but often necessary for research to thrive.
Are you a freelance translator or a translation agency looking for free translation software? Are you looking for a platform to offer your services and get connected to other translation professionals? Or are you looking for a professional translation? A new open source platform answers those needs!
Active traffic management mobility solutions don't only get people where they want to go, but also help address public policy problems such as accessibility, congestion, traffic accidents, and air pollution.
Software is very often critical for the safety of people or equipment. Trains, cars, power grids, hospitals, aircrafts, manufacturing plants, all should always work as expected, with no bugs. The technologies we are developing makes this possible.
’Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.’ And few people provide more proof of this than the amazing authors of the now 10 national ‘startup manifestos' circulating in Europe.
Battery improvement is one of the biggest challenges for electronic equipment. In particular, the limited battery autonomy of Electric Vehicle (EV) is currently one of the main obstacles preventing EV mass-market sales. Nevertheless, solutions are headed our way!
Have you ever dreamed of an automatic translation tool, fully customised to your needs and taking into account your domain and specific vocabulary? Then, at DeepLingo, we have the perfect solution for you!
Managing the flood of accessible research and public data and using it for the good of everybody offers major challenges but also huge potential benefits. How can we transform the new ways of doing science into successful innovation?
How can you, as a company, retain your customers, who can nowadays easily go from one supplier to another?
Gamification for business is the next step innovation.
Boosting Innovation through creativity and big data analytics
New ways to learn in the classroom and beyond. Empathic robot tutors for children.
Innovation of digital technologies and ICTs provide ample opportunities to improve active and healthy ageing, and transform the nature of health care. Most of these innovations, of which myriads are underway, will meet their users at home and in the community. Will they empower European citizens to develop meaningful and creative lives at home well into old age, seizing new opportunities for learning and social engagement? Or will they make homes more like institutions, introducing a medical regime that makes people dependent at home?
CTIC Plant VR automatically transforms 3D CAD designs into virtual reality scenarios ready to use in virtual reality devices. With this system, you will be able to navigate through an immersive scenario inside a 3D industrial plant using only a headset and a pad controller.
Two EU-funded projects bring robots to our service. Whether it is at home, at work or in a hospital, they will soon be a part of our life.
