AutoTRUST: Autonomous self-adaptive services for TRansformational personalized inclUsivenesS & resilience in mobiliTy.

Period: 2024-2027

Funding Agency: European Commission, HORIZON-CL5-2023-D6-01-01

Total amount: 6.5M Euro

The AutoTRUST project aims to develop and demonstrate a novel AI-leveraged self-adaptive framework of advanced vehicle technologies and solutions which optimize usability, perception, and experience on-board, and when boarding/off-boarding, in terms of security, privacy, well-being, health and assistance. AutoTRUST provides enhanced inclusiveness and trust in the interaction between users and new automated modes of road transport and mobility services in the transition from human-driven to automated vehicles. Safety and security of vehicle occupants in all circumstances even when the vehicle is driverless by helping to prevent dangerous and inconvenient situations will be of paramount importance. Intense cooperation between users, vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, researchers, and other stakeholders to co-design vehicles with solutions that optimize the on-board experience will be adopted. Moreover, an in-depth knowledge of the benefits of new vehicle technologies and solutions in terms of on-board experience, accessibility, inclusiveness, and trust will be acquired to enable wider user acceptability and contribute to the creation of future standards.

AGORA project is a research and educational programme of doctoral studies which aims to train the next
generation of Metaverse researchers and practitioners who will be able to address the ecosystem challenges identified, and co-create new knowledge and solutions across sectors and industries. This is possible thanks to the close collaboration between academic and non-academic beneficiaries and associated partners, that promises to lead to superior understanding and potential, drawing from academic excellence (on Ethics and Information Sciences, Computing and Infrastructure, Business and Management) and hands on industrial insights (with focus on Innovation, business models, Human Resources, and Financial Technologies).

FAME – Federated decentralized trusted dAta Marketplace for Embedded finance

Total amount: 16M Euro

Period: 2023-2026

Funding Agency: European Commission, HORIZON-CL4-2022-DATA-01-04

FAME is a joint effort of world-class experts in data management, data technologies, the data economy, and digital finance to develop, deploy and launch to the global market a unique, trustworthy, energy-efficient, and secure federated data marketplace for Embedded Finance (EmFi). The FAME marketplace will alleviate the proclaimed limitations of centralized cloud marketplaces towards demonstrating the full potential of the data economy. In this direction, the project will enhance a state of the art data marketplace infrastructure (i.e., H2020 i3-Market marketplace) with novel functionalities.

AI4Users – Responsible Use of Artificial Intelligence through Design for Accountability and Intelligibility

Period: 2020-2025

Funding Agency: The Research Council of Norway, ICTPlus

Total amount: 20MNOK

The AI4Users project addresses the “black box” problem contributing to the responsible use of AI for the digitalisation of public services. The novelty of AI4Users is that it targets specifically non-experts extending the reach of research beyond data scientists. The project takes a human-centred perspective addressing the needs of different groups including citizens, case handlers at the operational level, middle managers and policy makers. Specifically the project includes a) design, prototyping and assessing tools enabling different categories of non-experts to maintain insight into AI applications, b) formalization of the design knowledge generated in actionable design principles, c) capacity building through collaborations between academia and the public sector nationally and internationally.

Frida@work: Investigating uncompleted chatbot conversations

Funding Agency: Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV)

Total amount: 1MNOK

Learning Analytics in Practice to improve student engagement and performance in class.

Period: 2019-2021

Funding Agency: University of Agder, Norway

Total amount: 200KNOK

The project is focused on student-active forms of learning with the use of learning analytics (LAs). This can help us visualize the state of students’ (individuals and as a whole) knowledge and present the visualization to students, instructors and academic advisors. This can help students in facilitating their metacognitive activities and promoting self-reflection and awareness. Additionally, teachers would gain the precious insights in knowledge, progress and misconceptions of their students.
