Our research group is involved in the AI4EU European project, whose goal is to build the first European Artificial Intelligence On-Demand Platform and Ecosystem with the support of the European Commission under the H2020 programme. The main activities of the AI4EU project include:

  • The creation and support of a large European ecosystem spanning the 28 countries to facilitate collaboration between all Europeans actors in AI (scientists, entrepreneurs, SMEs, Industries, funding organizations, citizens…);
  • The design of a European AI on-Demand Platform to support this ecosystem and share AI resources produced in European projects, including high-level services, expertise in AI research and innovation, AI components and datasets, high-powered computing resources and access to seed funding for innovative projects using the platform; click here to know more
  • Research activities in five key interconnected AI scientific areas (Explainable AI, Physical AI ,Verifiable AI, Collaborative AI, Integrative AI), which arise from the application of AI in real-world scenarios; click here to know more 
  • The implementation of industry-led pilots through the AI4EU platform, which demonstrates the capabilities of the platform to enable real applications and foster innovation; click here to know more

The activities of our group are included in WP6 and foresee the development of an NLP-based application able to match job descriptions and skills with the ESCO ontology, the  European ontology for Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations. To this purpose, we have implemented a tool based on fastText embeddings, able to match text in any major European language with ESCO. The code is available on github.
