The digital landscape has been changing since the introduction of the Internet in our lives. Surfing the web and interacting with digital devices and content has become a basic daily routine. Still at present most digital content is not accessible for all.
Real-time subtitlers, also called live captioners, produce transcripts of what speakers say in many contexts: cultural events, workplaces, parliamentary assemblies, broadcasts, educational, other.
DA4You aims to contribute to meeting the need for digital accessibility training for young adults with varying abilities and disabilities across Europe, and to help them feel better equipped and more empowered to communicate with all audiences.
EASIT aims to have an impact on the training of professionals who will guarantee a higher social inclusion at European level by providing content which is easy to read and easy to understand.
The FOSTER Roadmap for Implementing Open Science Training Practices in Research institutions outlines three key ways and practical actions that can taken up by Research Performing Organisations in order to support the transition towards Open Science.
Introduced in the 70s, audio description has improved access to several cultural services, and it has increased freedom, independence and life quality to a vast portion of the audience suffering from sight loss.
Internet, audiovisual media and digital technology are transforming our world. Their potential, however, will not be fully realised until they become fully accessible, enabling all citizens to participate in everyday life.
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) is too often no more than a cryptic acronym to many in European research circles. It is at times not quite clear how to implement it. Now, thanks to the results of the RRI Tools project, an RRI Toolkit is about to be launched this week. Don’t hold back and feel free to explore all the available options.
Welcome to this Special Issue of the EuroScientist dedicated to Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). This issue outlines many facets of RRI. It also provides different perspectives on the topic, including historical, institutional, academic, and views of practitioners in the field.
RRI Tools set out to identify various practices in the field of RRI as a means to recognise best practice and best tools and share them widely to create a toolkit for RRI.
Over the past two years a European Union project has taken 80 journalism students and early-career journalists for one-week courses visiting research labs across Europe. I was lucky enough to take part in the last cohort of journalists sent to universities Read more […]
Artificial intelligence is a rapidly growing field of science and technology, yet the potential it holds for enhancing some of the world’s most powerful experimental tools such as neutron and x-ray probes is yet to be fully explored. Applying machine learning methods to processes within these international experimental facilities could help to overcome some of the biggest challenges faced by scientists today. This includes automating some of the handling, processing, and linking together of large datasets. At Institut Laue-Langevin, exploratory projects are already underway to ensure scattering science also reaps the benefits of artificial intelligence research.
