Diversity is part of our everyday life. Technology, despite its evolution, still cannot develop and maintain social relationships that transcend geographical and cultural backgrounds.
WeNet addresses this gap by providing a diversity-aware, machine-mediated paradigm of social relations. The goal is connecting people who can help each other, and the key is leveraging their diversity.
The WeNet platform will be the basis of a series of studies within universities across the world with diverse student populations. The studies will look at how the platform can improve students’ quality of life inside and outside the academic environment.
WeNet’s innovative paradigm impacts human interactions in general, especially those that may benefit from a collaborative approach (creative industries, medical diagnosis, …). The WeNet consortium will develop a research infrastructure to exploit the project results and strengthen the European innovation ecosystem with a worldwide perspective.
