Gotcha is a contract simplification tool that uses an advanced NLP engine to translate a legal contract from legalese to layman’s terms. By simply uploading the content, any kind of contract signer automatically gets an annotated version of the document written in “plain language”. With Gotcha, companies can simplify their internal processes and individuals can be empowered to feel confident in their legal activities.
LOQUI is a browser based and smartphone app that utilizes virtual tutors to help users acquire a new language through a speak & imitate format, correcting their mistakes in real time. Users will find themselves immersed in a virtual world where they can interact situationally in a variety of real-life simulations, providing an unmatched language learning experience.
MYSTORY is the first platform delivering predictive audience insights on European film and TV content at the development stage, supporting the generation and distribution of high quality content aligned with a plurality of languages and tastes around Europe. MYSTORY’s Marketplace showcases qualified scripts for movies and TV series, facilitating the match between screenplayers and small/medium producers.
This collaborative document editor uses proprietary NLP algorithms to create compelling public grant proposals, business plans, financial plans, pitch decks, agreements, contracts and many other business documents.
Mainstream digital data storage technologies are approaching their density limits. SANDY is a project aimed at enabling the use of synthetic DNA as a digital data storage medium. In collaboration with an international team of experts in bioinformatics and synthetic biology, we will create a smart archival database system which will map information into synthetic DNA using new encoding and decoding techniques to improve the scalability, cost efficiency, and spectrum of use for this new methodology.
TOMandLISA (Trustworthy continuous monitoring of health conditions and verbal gathering of symptoms via an artificial agent) is a VS project promoting the transformation of the healthcare system from its current episodic, symptom-triggered status to one where individuals are continuously accompanied by non-obtrusive technologies to aid in their diagnosis and treatment. To do so, we intend to develop a device which will perform contactless vital sign monitoring and speech communication.
ESAPAD (External Stimuli-Activated PCMs Autonomous Discovery) is a multinational project promoting a more sustainable future. Coordinated by the Venture Studio, ESAPAD seeks to carry out an autonomous experiment to produce externally stimulated material which could store energy for up to 2 months with sunlight and waste industrial heat as triggers for phase change. This project has the potential to allow flexibility when using and transporting stored energy over long distances and time periods.
ROBOTRUST is a project built to ensure the safety and competence of robots in interacting with humans and the environment before they are actually deployed into the real world. We intend to design an ultra-realistic simulated virtual 3D environment that provides a playground for artificial agents to emulate robots and humans for the training and testing of AI control systems designed to interact with humans.
We walk hand in hand with companies through t heir entire journey, ultimately guiding them in the direction of successful commercialisation of their products and business growth.Learn more on the Process
