TRIPMENTOR. The project concerns the development of a bilingual service (English, Greek) in the form of a web-interactive platform/ application that will provide a personalized, integrated and unique travel experience to the visitor of the Attica region. Alternative map routes will be proposed to the traveler connected to the app for recreational purposes, including stops at the selected points of interest with real time information on cultural, recreational and athletic events. Suggestions and relative recreational proposals will match the traveler's preferences (profile type), determined through a specific internal functionality of the platform, which combines information that she/ he provides (answers to up to 5 short questions) with relative data extracted from social media. Each route includes stops that have meaningful, cultural, chronological or thematic relevance to each other, optimum duration of visit, optimal way of travel and total duration of the journey, creating personalized narration- storytelling and incorporating gamification elements, depending on the characteristics of the visitor and the weighting of her/ his personal interests.
Project duration: 2018 - 2021

PaloAnalytics. This project will develop the innovative PaloAnalytics platform that will allow companies and organizations, which operate in many countries, to monitor and analyze in depth the markets' interest to their products and successfully plan their marketing and communication strategy with data and insights collected from all the local media and presented in a common language, English. PaloAnalytics platform will cover the need of international companies to manage their reputation and compare it with the competitors. It will also allow them to investigate the impact of their products on consumers across different countries and this will be achieved with the analysis of content from sites, blogs, social networks and open data. The developed services will allow companies to identify both positive and negative comments and reports about their brand name and products and the individual features that formed the public opinion.
Project duration: 2018 - 2021.
