Contributions to Europe’s

AI community

COALA will help building a connected AI community across Europe. We will identify relevant communities and valuable contributions out of the project results, and contribute them to the community. We will consider providing algorithms, tools, training datasets, services, and experts under consideration of privacy, confidentiality, and security.

A Taskforce for Digital Intelligent Assistants in industry is an open group of global experts interested in digital assistants, conversational AI, or softbots in manufacturing.

We plan to exchange information and resources within this group and to coordinate actions in order to reduce redundant research and allow creating opportunities for exploitation.

If you are interested to become a member of the DIA Taskforce, please sign up here.
