This week a delegation from Sofia University and the GATE institute visited Chalmers University and the Digital Twin Cities Centre (DTCC). Among the many events and exchanges during the week was a joint workshop on AI enriched Digital Twins hosted by DTCC. The participants presented their work on semantic segmentation to enrich digital twins as well as several use-cases ranging from wind simulations to parametric urban planning and air quality analysis.
DTCC coordinator Bernd Ketzler was very pleased with the outcome. “We see an increased scientific interest in semantic segmentation and the development of different techniques and algorithms, and I am sure that the strategic partnership between GATE and DTCC can make many good contributions to the field”.
In 2022 GATE and DTCC will start several projects on the topic. Stay tuned for updates and results.
The GATE CoE is a purpose-built institute, established as a joint initiative between Sofia University – the most prestigious educational and scientific hub in Bulgaria, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden – an outstanding European institution with extensive experience in research, education and innovation in Big Data area, and Chalmers Industrial Technology, Sweden – a leader in innovation management, university-industry collaboration and technology transfer.
