Project description

Augmented workplace innovation to guide SMEs

In today's fast-paced business landscape, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) face a growing challenge: harnessing the power of cutting-edge software tools while ensuring their workforce can navigate them effectively. Many struggle to bridge the gap. In this context, the EU-funded WASABI project will equip SMEs with the tools and knowledge needed to elevate employee performance. Advanced user interfaces will be designed to facilitate continuous augmented hybrid-decision-making. These simplify interactions with complex software, effectively lowering the skill floor for all users. At the heart of the project’s solution lies the Digital Intelligent Assistant (DIA), an anthropomorphic, task-oriented AI with a conversational interface. DIA is designed to guide SMEs, ensuring hands-free, eyes-free computer interaction, AI-based advice, and augmented analytics.

Objective

WASABI aims at providing SMEs with the tools and knowledge to improve workers capacities and performance, providing advanced user interfaces for continuous augmented hybrid-decision-making. Such interfaces assist employees in interacting with complex software, effectively reducing its skill floor. In consequence, humans will find using software easier and be more open to applying it effectively at work. WASABI’s advanced interfaces will cover, for instance, situation analysis, intervention identification, action planning and execution, and impact monitoring and mitigation. One of the key technologies in WASABI’s solution portfolio is the digital intelligent assistant (DIA) - an anthropomorphic, task-oriented AI with a conversational interface. A network of DIHs that will help boosting impact by guiding SMEs in this new path will be created and integrated within other existing DIH networks. Our customized, federated, white-label shop will include such DIAs and skill-packages to help organizations reach their sustainability goals. Blue-collar and white-collar workers will be capable of using it for hands-free or eyes-free computer-interaction, AI-based advice and guidance, and augmented analytics.
