UBITECH kicks off the COALA Research and Innovation Action on cognitive assisted agile manufacturing

UBITECH participates at the virtual kick-off meeting hosted by BIBA (October 14, 2020) of the COALA Research and Innovation Action, officially started on October 1st, 2020. The project is funded by European Commission under Horizon 2020 Programme (Grant Agreement No. 957296) and spans on the period October 2020 – September 2023. The vision of the COALA project for AI in manufacturing is the development of human-centered digital assistant that provides a more proactive and pragmatic approach to support operative situations characterized by cognitive load, time pressure, and little or zero tolerance for quality issues. COALA will help shaping the complementarity in the collaboration between the AI-based assistant and the human so that the AI will take over time consuming and stressful tasks reliably and credibly, and the human will focus on understanding and problem-solving in complex & knowledge-intensive situations. COALA’s AI-focused education and training concept will prepare the human-side of the collaboration by offering concept for teaching professionals systematically and, in the language of the workers, about the capabilities, risks, and limitations of AI in manufacturing.

UBITECH undertakes the technical coordination of the CYRENE Research and Innovation Action on supply chain services security and resilience certification

UBITECH participates at the virtual kick-off meeting hosted by MAGGIOLI (October 14-15, 2020) of the CYRENE Research and Innovation Action, officially started on October 1st, 2020. The project is funded by European Commission under Horizon 2020 Programme (Grant Agreement No. 952690) and spans on the period October 2020 – September 2023. The vision of the CYRENE project is to enhance the security, privacy, resilience, accountability and trustworthiness of Supply Chains (SCs) through the provision of a novel and dynamic Conformity Assessment Process (CAP) that evaluates the security and resilience of supply chain services, the interconnected IT infrastructures composing these services and the individual devices that support the operations of the SCs. In order to meet its objective, the proposed Conformity Assessment Process is based on a collaborative, multi-level evidence -driven, Risk and Privacy Assessment Approach that support, at different levels, the SCs security officers and operators to recognize, identify, model, and dynamically analyse advanced persistent threats and vulnerabilities as well as to handle daily cyber-security and privacy risks and data breaches.
