The aim of this workshop is to disseminate scientific results produced by the SMART project and PASCAL Network of Excellence to the industry and businesses. The event is aimed at industries and businesses with a connection to data analysis, language technologies, machine translation, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and related areas. It will allow industrial researchers to become familiar with the work carried out within the Pascal and the Smart consortia, and to establish connections with their researchers. Pascal has various programmes aimed at linking with industry, including an Industrial Club and a Harvest Programme. The coordinators of both programmes will be present at the event, as well as the coordinators of Pascal and Smart.
Posters, demos, dissemination material will be available at the venue of the industrial outreach day. The format will be informal and flexible, a combination between a poster session and a technology demo session.
