Mr Li Wang’s first secondment month at ITware, Budapest, Hungary

Mr Li Wang from BU has performed his first secondment at ITware. Li has worked on the AI algorithms and proposed an AI framework for the iGame gamification system.  Li has designed a AI recommandation system using a deep learning framework and proposed a methodlogy framework for the future implementation of the system.

Dr Jaime Martin Martin’s first secondment at SensorID, Compobasso, Italy

The company SensorID company is located in Campobasso, a beautiful city in the Moilise region, Italy. The period of collaboration between the University of Malaga and SensorID allowed the transfer of clinical knowledge of inertial sensors to a prototype that can be used in the iGame project.
