AI4Media Workshop on the European AI-on-Demand Platform
11 November 2021 | 9:00 to 13:00 CET
On 11 November 2021, AI4Media is organizing a workshop on the European AI-on-demand platform. The aim of this platform, which has been initiated by the AI4EU project, is to bring together the AI community while promoting European values and to facilitate technology transfer from research to business. As a follow-up project of AI4EU, AI4Media is collaborating closely with the AI4EU platform by integrating the project’s outputs such as modules, services, and algorithms into it as well as by organizing AI4EU Web Cafés for community building.
The workshop starts with a general introduction to the platform, highlighting the involved organizations and projects as well as its different parts such as the AI Catalogue and the Web Cafés. In the following talks, we illustrate the cooperation between European AI networks on the AI-on-demand platform, with special emphasis on digital innovation hubs. The first part is concluded with a Q&A session where everybody is invited to discuss the various aspects of the AI-on-Demand platform with the speakers.
The second part focuses on AI4EU Experiments, an open-source platform for the development, training, sharing, and deployment of AI models which constitutes the technical part of the AI-on-Demand platform. We present the general features of AI4EU Experiments such as the Marketplace and the Design Studio as well as some example pipelines. We also show how AI4EU Experiments can be connected to other media platforms and how new modules can be integrated into it. In the final Q&A session, the participants of the workshop also have the opportunity to get technical support for AI4EU Experiments.
Taken together, these parts allow a better understanding of the technical and non-technical facets of the AI-on-demand platform. Ultimately, the objective is to highlight the role of the platform as the central link between the European AI networks and to encourage everyone interested in AI to join it.
