THE PILOTS

The project will run pilot trials in 18 sites worldwide including universities and adult school, involving 10,000 participants throughout the whole duration of the project.

The third round of pilots started in October 2022.

 

2019

In the first year of the project, a pre-pilot test in Barcelona, led by CSIC, was conducted to involve the association of monoparental families. The work in the first year focused on meeting with the association of monoparental families, and planning the pilot with them. The work also included the process for getting the ethical approval for the pre-pilot as well as drafting the contract with the association.

 

2020

In the second year of the project, WeNet ran the diversity measurement pilots, aiming at collecting the data needed to build the diversity model and training the algorithms to be used in the pilot iterations that will follow.
This activity involved University of Trento (Italy), the National University of Mongolia, the University of Aalborg (Denmark), the Universidad Católica “Nuestra Señora de la Asunción” (Paraguay), the London School of Economics (UK), and Jilin University (China).

 

2021

In the third year of the project, WeNet ran the second pilots: they ran on a common scenario – getting strangers to help each other – with a total of over 200 student participants posing and answering questions to each other via a chatbot application, supported by Telegram.
