9:30 Presentation by Mark van Staalduinen TNO ICT

Partnerships with TNO

The AMI Consortium projects map very well with the goals of TNO. In AMI and with its clients, TNO is an innovation partner, as well as a knowledge partner. Reflecting the multi-disciplinary nature of the organization, TNO has multiple roles within the AMI Consortium.

TNO works with AMI partners and its clients in defining abstract meeting support functions for users, who are acting within the broader context of their organization and the more focused context of a project that consists of series of meetings. We develop new and concrete meeting application concepts. We discuss those concepts broadly, then evaluate their technical feasibility. The areas of technology covered range from speech recognition, computer vision, segmentation and data mining.

Once the TNO research is conducted, we translate findings into more detailed user requirements, such that application developers in the consortium can create meaningful demonstrators. Next, with the AMI simulation systems, we perform systematic evaluation sessions. In an environment specially developed for testing these kinds of applications in their organizational context, users are observed and measured.
