The upcoming BenicàssimTech’2023 Artificial Intelligence Workshop (https://baio.webs.upv.es), scheduled to be held in Villa Elisa (Benicàssim, Spain) on the 20th and 21st of September, is set to showcase some of the research and transfer projects currently under development through university-industry collaborations. With the aim of promoting applied research and transfer in the areas of AI and Data Analytics, this workshop enables direct interaction between a select group of experts from different universities and companies in the sector. The workshop will explore options for effective collaboration in R&D projects and best practices in AI. Among the highlights of this event will be the presentation of the SUN project, which aims to develop an integrated Extended Reality (XR) platform with profound social implications. The workshop promises to be a significant platform for exploring the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) across various domains.
Being an event co-organized by the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), several professors and researchers will participate in the BenicassimTech’2023. Among the different presentations, there will be two directly related to the SUN project. Thus, UPV professors will provide insights into the project’s advancements and its potential to reshape how we interact with technology and each other in a social context. Likewise, FACTOR Ingeniería y Decoletaje, one of the SUN industrial partners, will explain how AI can be incorporated into industrial environments and will provide an overview of the pilot project they are running in the context of the SUN project. Sharing these experiences and activities with managers and researchers from different universities and enterprises who will attend the event will constitute a noticeable outreach activity.
Furthermore, UPV’s collaborative efforts are actively shaping various scenarios for Pilot 2 within the SUN project’s framework. Pilot 2 aims to redefine workplace safety through the application of XR technology. Workers are equipped with XR devices featuring motion sensors, ensuring precise tracking and the correct usage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). XR technology also enhances workplace efficiency by delivering real-time alerts for misplaced objects and facilitating machine assessments.
As the SUN project continues to advance, it holds the promise of enhancing industries by creating safer, more interactive, and efficient work environments. The presentation at the BenicàssimTech’2023 Workshop is a testament to the project’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology for the betterment of society.
