Politecnico di Torino using ONDA for multiple initiatives

The Politecnico di Torino and ITHACA, a non-profit association founded by Politecnico di Torino, have been using ONDA DIAS since the end of 2018. The ONDA platform is being tested as a solution to integrate and improve different ITHACA's operational workflows: ONDA advanced APIs have been used to search, process and publish data, including the creation of datasets for the purpose of automatic extraction of information through Deep Learning algorithms.
This testing phase has laid the foundation for the ongoing discussions on the [...]
