This is a summary of the projects in which we are now working:
Bear in mind that these titles might change as the projects evolve.
Case 1: RIDE -, right data for the right decisions.
What is it?: a tool for decision making developed in collaboration with Migri board. The tool will be enhanced by artificial intelligent that will create future scenarios to support and focus discussions in meetings, especially in board meetings.
State of the art: The kick off of this case was on the 19.11.2017. We are now continuously working with the board to better understand their practices. We are also working on the definition of KPIs for the development and defining the technical architecture for the tool.
