WeNet project kicks off

WeNet is a Horizon2020 project that plans to create an AI-based social media platform that will act as basis of a series of studies within universities worldwide. Using computer science, sociology and engineering, this multidisciplinary project will enable people to support each other in a way that transcends geographical and cultural backgrounds.

The project held its kick-off meeting in Trento (Italy) in January 2019 with 15 highly rated universities and SMEs from Europe and Israel, India, Mongolia, Paraguay, Mexico and China.
