We welcomed 2022 with the first event in the series of the monthly business talks titled AI Industry Connect Talks which was held online on Wednesday 19 January 2022. This time, we hosted SciFY (Science For You) with two invited speakers, Dr George Giannakopoulos, Co-founder, Chief Executive Officer of the company and Alexandros Tzoumas, Technical Manager at SciFY.
Talk title: Co-creating a democratised AI through open innovation
Talk description: SciFY (Science For You) is a rare hybrid of not-fot-profit and AI company, multiply awarded at a national and international level, which has been working towards the co-creation of human-centric, trustworthy AI systems. In this presentation we share our exciting 10-year journey, applying technology transfer and connecting research with the industry and the society. We will share how our applications, trainings and services have exceeded 140.000 beneficiaries; how we have turned research results into open products and systems for multilingual summarisation, classification, phonology and linguistics. We will discuss how we help researchers bring their results to the light and to the community, how we break the barriers between research communities and AI, and how we support and empower industries in their AI endeavours. We will, finally, show how we pave the way to AI democratisation by co-creating an ecosystem of AI Pioneers in Greece, bringing AI innovation to the society as a whole.
The AI Industry Connect Talks series was launched in March 2021 by SKEL | The Artificial Intelligence Lab, Institute of Informatics & Telecommunications at NCSR Demokritos and is supported by ahedd Digital Innovation Hub. Through this series of talks, we aim to bring AI innovation to the forefront and inform wider audiences of the endless possibilities. Domain professionals tell us how the Industry applies scientific results in real-life.
