Due to the diversity and complexity of unstructured documents that need to be processed by companies, automation and saving costs is a challenging task. Auto-Pilot is a platform that lets users apply Artificial Intelligence (Natural Language Processing) techniques to process these unstructured documents such as emails and PDFs more efficiently. We believe that the best results are obtained when humans and machines are efficiently working together. Therefore, Auto-Pilot maintains a user-first approach, where the machine closely follows all the steps that a human normally takes when processing a certain file and gradually takes over more work. We call this Collaborative Intelligence.
HART (Human Augmentation Research and Technology) is a student team from theUniversity of Technology Eindhoven. HART focuses on the research field of humanaugmentation. As humans, we are limited by our biological boundaries. With human augmentation, we try to look beyond and overcome these limits with technology. We have developed an application that can transform spoken language into a vibrational language.With a sleeve that provides haptic feedback, it is possible to substitute the hearing sense of humans. The goal of HART is to create freedom of experiences and become more than human.
Respyre is a TU Delft spin-off focusing on the valorisation of a unique scientific cross-over between material science and biology. We believe a living city is a healthy city. By creating space for nature -in an otherwise barren environment- and integrating self-sustaining vegetation in an efficient, sustainable and functional way, we want to bring cities to life. With bio-receptive concrete and moss facades Respyre empowers cities to breathe! The Philips Innovation Award will help us further develop our technology with the great trainings, network and possibly financing it comes!
Ready-made household and personal care products are extremely polluting for 2 main reasons: These products often contain lots of water (up to 95%). This water gets transported, unnecessarily emitting large amounts of CO2 emissions. Secondly, these products come in single-use plastic packaging, resulting in a lot of waste. Our reusable cleaning and hand soap bottles can be refilled at home with our effective, eco-friendly tablets and tap water. These products alone save 30 plastic bottles and 10kg of cargo weight per household every year. We will continue adding more extremely concentrated products, increasing our impact further.
Veridis develops the first scalable analysis method for plastic recycling. The largest challenges for the plastic recycling industry are material insight and quality control. There are no industrially applicable and affordable methods that can tell recyclers the exact composition and quality of their material. Subsequently, high-quality recycling is only done with ~2% of all plastics. We solve this problem with our patent-pending MADSCAN technology, scaling up the analysis of plastic batches by a factor 100.000 whilst being >99% accurate. By giving the plastic recycling industry exactly the reliable insights it needs, we enable this industry to recycle more, faster & more efficiently, revolutionizing plastic recycling.
