Stairway to AI: Ease the Engagement of Low-Tech users to the AI-on-Demand platform through AI


Project Coordinated by Alma Mater Studiorum - Università Di Bologna

The StairwAI project targets low-tech users with the goal of facilitating their engagement on the AI on-demand Platform. This will be achieved through a new service layer enriching the functionalities of the on-demand platform and containing a multi-lingual interaction layer enabling conversations with the Platform in the user’s own language, a horizontal matchmaking service for the automatic discovery of AI assets (tools, data sets, AI experts, consultants, papers, courses etc.) meeting the user business needs and, a vertical matchmaking service that will dimension and provision hardware resources through a proper hardware provider (HPC, Cloud and Edge infrastructures).
