  • NOMAD - Policy Formulation and Validation through non moderated crowdsourcing

    The ability to leverage the vast amount of user-generated content for supporting governments in their political decisions requires new ICT tools that will be able to analyze and classify the opinions expressed on the informal Web, or stimulate responses, as well as to put data from sources as diverse as blogs, online opinion polls and government reports to an effective use.

  • USEFIL - Unobtrusive Smart Environments for Independent Living

    The number of elderly citizens in EU as well as the total number of seniors living alone is growing leading to increased demands placed on society’s care and medical services. Although ICT technologies can increase safety, independence and quality of life of elderly people while staying at home the adoption rates of such advancements show that these are still undesired by the majority of the population. USEFIL project intends to cope with this gap proposing advanced but affordable in-home unobtrusive monitoring and web communication solutions.

  • AVISPIRE - Audio-VIsual Speech Processing for Interaction in Realistic Environments

    AVISPIRE will work towards expanding the state-of-the-art in the topic of audio-visual speech processing from today’s "toy" examples to realistic human-computer interaction in difficult, realistic environments like the classroom, the automobile, multimedia streams of broadcasted news, and during meetings in smart rooms. Work will focus on both robust extraction of visual speech information, as well as its efficient fusion with the acoustic modality.

  • SYNC3 - Synergetic Content Creation and Communication

    SYNC3 will provide an intelligent framework for making more accessible the vast quantity of user comments on news issues. The project will structure the part of blogsphere that refers to running news stories, rendering it accessible, manageable and re-usable. The immediate target of SYNC3 is the news industry and social networks, but domains like commerce, tourism, e-science and business intelligence are likely to benefit from the resulting technology.

  • CASAM - Computer-Aided Semantic Annotation of Multimedia

    CASAM expects to facilitate the synergy of human and machine intelligence to significantly speed up the task of human-produced semantic annotation of multimedia content. The project will deal with the task of aggregating human and machine knowledge with the ultimate target of minimizing human involvement in the annotation procedure. Intelligent human-computer interaction is of central importance, and the concept of effort-optimized knowledge aggregation will be introduced. This as the task of reaching the desired result by requiring the least effort from the user.

  • AMINESS - ANALYSIS OF MARINE INFORMATION FOR ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE SHIPPING

    The goal of the AMINESS project is to contribute in the safety, management and monitoring of the sea environment and the Aegean Sea in particular. Reducing the possibility of ship accidents in the Aegean Sea is important to all economic, environmental, and cultural sectors of Greece. Oil spill cleanups can cost over 1 billion Euros, whereas accidents involving water soluble cargos would result in irrevocable changes to the Aegean ecosystem. Despite an increase in traffic, there are no national-level monitoring policies and ships formulate routes according to their best judgment.

  • CPS - Medium: A Novel Human Centric CPS to Improve Motor/Cognitive Assessment and Enable Adaptive Rehabilitation

    The objective of this research is to develop methods and tools for a multimodal and multi-sensor assessment and rehabilitation game system called CPLAY for children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). CPLAY collects and processes multiple types of stimulation and performance data while a child is playing. Its core has a touch-screen programmable game that has various metrics to measure delay of response, score, stamina/duration, accuracy of motor/hand motion.

  • PASCAL 2 - Pattern Analysis, Statistical Modelling and Computational Learning

    PASCAL is a Network of Excellence funded by the European Union. It has established a distributed institute that brings together researchers and students across Europe, and is now reaching out to countries all over the world. PASCAL is developing the expertise and scientific results that will help create new technologies such as intelligent interfaces and adaptive cognitive systems. To achieve this, it supports and encourages collaboration between experts in Machine Learning, Statistics and Optimization. It also promotes the use of machine learning in many relevant application domains.

  • PRONTO - Event Recognition for Intelligent Resource Management

    PRONTO will offer real-time, knowledge-led support for decision-makers in sectors characterised by large volumes of multi-source, multi-format data. The project introduces a highly synergetic approach to intelligent resource management by combining the research areas of information extraction from sensor data, information extraction from audio and text, and event recognition. This approach is applicable to a wide range of domains, where resource management is needed, and the PRONTO technology will be tested in two such domains: emergency rescue operations and city transport management.
