Welcome to the Mattermost installation for the European AI Community!

This communication platform is a result of the joint effort within the VISION project (H2020-ICT-48 CSA). The aim of the VISION project is to reinforce, interconnect and mobilise Europe’s AI community and to orchestrate and accelerate Europe’s transition to a world-leading position in the research, development and deployment of AI technologies.

The Mattermost installation has been established to provide an effective, moderated and functional communication tool for facilitation of the cooperation, interactions and knowledge sharing between Europe’s AI networks of excellence (ICT48-NoEs), the AI-on-demand platform (AI4EU platform), the AI research community at large, and other stakeholders across diverse areas of AI. 

Among the reasons that led us to decide on a centralised communication platform are the flexibility and scalability of the Mattermost installation that was ultimately chosen. The technical maturity and broad acceptance of this solution across Europe and beyond will support the desired accessibility and anticipated growth in users. 

To be able to join the teams created in Mattermost for the ICT-48 Community, you as a potential user need to receive a link. Feel free to ask your coordinator to get the invitation to this communication platform.

Technical Arrangements

The Mattermost installation is hosted and supported by the Inria technical services on the Inria headquarter premises in Rocquencourt France. Inria plays a leading role within its multiple involvement in European AI community and provides strong institutional support to main European AI initiatives. Inria’s strict privacy policy and data security compliant with European regulatory framework are a solid base for confidentiality of wide user groups.

Inria’s Information Systems Directorate is the infrastructure administrator. The governance of the Mattermost instance is also composed of four system administrators, two from Inria and two from CIIRC CTU. The systems admins cannot access private channels or private messages.
