AI researchers are isolated in research centers and their scientific and technology strengths are not always well shared in the economy and society. To optimize industrial competitiveness across all sectors including for SMEs and non-tech industries and help address societal challenges (e.g. ageing, transport, gender equality), AI can help.
But AI softwares are built within complex frameworks, making them hard to be transfered on other machines, and hard to use for non-experts.
The French SME found the way to make softwares from AI laboratories transferable and accessible to non-experts.
To build a strong collaborative AI online laboratory, available for use-cases experiments, and answer the call ICT-49-2020, the French SME needs partners.
They are looking to join a consortium under research agreements with: a safe IT infrastructure to host data, a specialist of human-machine interfaces, and research centers willing to transfer their know-how to the society. A Research Center or an Industrial could be the coordinator.
The deadline for EOIs : 31 of January 2020
The deadline of the call : 22 of April 2020
