  • StoryBot - Automated workflows in news production towards robot-assisted journalism

    StoryBot aims to provide an integrated platform for automated news production and presentation (publications). We propose the idea of a bot that:
    • allows the creation of an editorial plan, with a list of topics of interest
    • collects and aggregates web content (including content from social media) in real time for each topic of interest, highlighting basic entities from each story
    • allows journalists to combine and edit content from various sources into a single story
    • publishes the news story in the format and channel chosen by the journalist

  • RADIO - Robots in assisted living environments: Unobtrusive, efficient, reliable and modular solutions for independent ageing

    Demographic and epidemiologic transitions have brought a new health care paradigm with the presence of both, growing elderly population and chronic diseases. Life expectancy is increasing as well as the need for long-term care. Institutional care for the aged population faces economical struggles with low staffing ratios and consequent quality problems.

  • YDS - Your Data Stories

    The revolution in information technology over the last years has proven its ability to process huge amounts of data and made evident that big data can change the world. Open Government Data (OGD), from being an obscure possibility just five years ago, is spreading across the globe at a phenomenal rate, delivering the promise to spur innovation, to deliver better services for less money, to improve planning, to increase transparency, and to reduce corruption.

  • BigDataEurope - Integrating Big Data, Software & Communities for Addressing Europe's Societal Challenges

    BigDataEurope will provide support mechanisms for all the major aspects of a data value chain, in terms of the employed data and technology assets, the participating roles and the established or evolving processes. The effectiveness of the provided support mechanisms will be assessed in different domains pertaining to Europe’s major societal challenges with respect to the needs and requirements of the related communities. To this end, BigDataEurope focuses on providing an integrated stack of tools to manipulate, publish and use large-scale

  • SentIMAGi - Brand monitoring and reputation management via multi-modal sentiment analysis

    Recent brand monitoring technologies rely mostly on the textual aspect of content to derive the under-lying public sentiment with respect to a brand, essentially ignoring the wealth of - constantly increasing - visual content. SentIMAGi will create a powerful brand monitoring and reputation management framework, exploiting multi-modal sentiment analysis methods and summariza-tion. The aim of the framework is to provide an efficient but complete view of the public senti-ment towards different aspects of a brand.

  • PYRONES - PYRo-mOdelliNg and Evacuation Simulation system

    Structural fires continue to pose a great threat towards human life and property. Due to the complexity and non-deterministic characteristics of a building fire disaster, it is not a straightforward task to assess the effectiveness of fire protection measures embedded in the building design, planned evacuation strategies and potential modes of response for mitigating the fire’s consequences.

  • COncORDE - Development of Coordination Mechanisms During Different Kinds of Emergencies

    The threat of mass casualty incidents or medical surges to healthcare systems has always been present.
    Preparing essential parts of the healthcare system such as hospitals and their partners to prevent, respond,and rapidly recover from these threats is critical for protecting and securing the entire health infrastructure.
    Large-scale disaster situations causing mass casualty incidents are characterised by large numbers of

  • SPEEDD - Scalable ProactivE Event-Driven Decision making

    SPEEDD (Scalable ProactivE Event-Driven Decision making) will develop a system for proactive event-based decision-making: decisions will be triggered by forecasting events -whether they correspond to problems or opportunities- instead of reacting to them once they happen.
    The decisions and actions will be real-time, in the sense that they will be taken under tight time constraints, and require on-the-fly processing of "Big Data", ie extremely large amounts of noisy data storming from different geographical locations as well as historical data.

  • Greco-Risks - Hellenic Natural-Hazards Risk-Mitigation System of Systems

    The proposal named "Greco-Risks" Hellenic Natural-Hazards Risk-Mitigation System of Systems (A real time 365/24 operational platform)" was selected for funding in the context of "SYNERGASIA 2011" national research programmes framework. Besides NCSR Demokritos, participating with the Integrated Systems Laboratory (http://isl.iit.demokritos.gr), the consortium includes a well balanced team of relevant government agencies, industry, SMEs and academic partners.
