Startup Europe Summit 2019 - European Commission Conference on Technological Startups was an event organized in partnership with the Ministry of Communications and Information Society and the City Hall of Cluj-Napoca.
The participants were able to find the latest news directly from technology leaders, as well as details of European funding opportunities directly from Brussels. Our colleagues presented NTT DATA Romania’s latest technology projects: Hitoe, Burunavi, Sota and Semantic Classification
"Sota is already used by colleagues in Japan and its’ purpose is to be a companion for elderly people who live alone. For example, if the person has a medical treatment at certain times, Sota will remind them: "Have you taken the medication?" If not, SOTA will ask them to take it. Sota can also check the weather, and if the weather is good enough it will encourage the person to go out for a walk." - Bogdan Bustan, NTT DATA Romania
Semantic Classification is another innovative solution, that uses artificial intelligence, currently in the experimental stage and can be used both for airplane landings and for autonomous cars.
