Intelligent Digital Transformation Laboratory
The Intelligent Digital Transformation Laboratory was established in 2020, as a successor to the e-Services, e-Learning & e-Government Lab that had been founded in 2008. It is part of the Information Technologies Institute of CERTH. The Lab focuses on research and development in the areas of video/image/multimedia understanding and artificial intelligence, and on how these technologies can be applied towards transforming various business sectors and the society at large.
