Collaboration is essential

Each project partner brings a unique set of skills, networks and know-how. A Data Pro has vast experience in processing textual content. GEO is focused on processing images. Combining the expertise of the partners on the project allows for a smarter, more versatile solution – an NN module, trained in processing both textual and image content, also combined with symbolic module for the processing of less intensive content. While the ANNITA is robust and volume-efficient in the domains it is trained in, SPAS can cover areas where the ANNITA has no training. This not only covers different data, but also taps into different customer types, widening the commercial benefits of the project and creating further value for all participating parties.
The ADP IT developers and technical personnel will be responsible for the design and integration of the system, while each partner will focus on their respective module: textual processing (ADP) and image processing (GEO).
