A team of researchers from the University of Luxembourg, AEGIS IT Research GmbH (Germany), Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium), and Telefónica I+D (Spain) has received an EIC Pathfinder Challenge grant of 4 million euros for their research in AI-driven data visualisation systems. This project called Symbiotik had been officially launched this Wednesday, 5 October.

Official lauch of Symbiotik project

This project is based on the observation that we live in an era of information overload that impairs our capacity to make objective decisions, especially in time-sensitive contexts. From emergency rooms and autonomous cars to operational command centres, a clear understanding and rapid assessment must take place based on the available information at our disposal.

While the use of data visualisation tools to mitigate this effect has been widely discussed as a possible countermeasure, the potential of these tools has not yet unlocked their true potential to best assist the user in critical decision-making tasks.

The Symbotik project is coordinated by Prof. Luis Leiva at the University of Luxembourg, along with Mr. Michalis Vakalellis (AEGIS IT Research GmbH), Prof. Jean Vanderdonckt (Université Catholique de Louvain) and Dr. Ioannis Arapakis (Telefónica I+D). As stated by Prof. Leiva,

We propose an ambitious framework to create symbiotic self-adaptive InfoVis systems. Ultimately, the project will offer a principled framework to support decision making in situation and time-sensitive tasks.

Support by Luxinnovation

Luxinnovation provided its National Contact Point services throughout the entire preparation of the application, with a focus on proposal review. At this level, particular effort was paid to generally aligning the project with the renewed impact-driven logic of the Horizon Europe: helping to make more evident how the project will achieve the outcomes by the European Commission over the time, and to which extent it will contribute to addressing wider scientific, economic and societal impacts.
