  • Technology, innovation and Artificial Intelligence projects have a prominent place in Spain’s strategy for distributing EU Next Generation funds.

Pervasive Technologies, a Spanish company expert in solutions for intelligent image processing through Artificial Intelligence, announces its alliance with Leyton, an international consulting firm specialized in innovation financing, with the common goal of advising Spanish companies to develop innovative technology projects in multiple areas with the possible obtaining of these grants.

NextGenerationEU is a program approved by the European Union in June 2020 to boost Europe’s recovery after the crisis generated by COVID-19. It is the largest economic stimulus instrument ever funded by the EU and contemplates an investment of 806.9 billion euros with the aim of achieving “a greener, more digital and resilient Europe”.

The Spanish strategy for channeling these funds was embodied in the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, through which, from the second quarter of 2021, the different administrations (ministries, autonomous communities and some city councils) are calling for public tenders, bids, subsidies and grants.

Within the framework of the National Artificial Intelligence Strategy and as part of the Digital Spain 2025 agenda, AI is one of the most prominent technological elements. With an estimated total investment of 500 million euros, the aim is to position Spain as a leading country in the application of AI, leading the digital transformation in the business fabric with this technology; promoting the creation of qualified employment, stimulating both national talent and attracting global talent; and incorporating Artificial Intelligence as a factor to improve the productivity of Spanish companies and the Public Administration.

The collaboration between Pervasive Technologies and Leyton, in this context, will greatly facilitate access to the management of these grants to Spanish companies of all sizes, from large corporations to startups, to develop and grow with new technology projects that improve their operations. This will allow companies to automate their processes, improve productivity, enter new markets or develop new services and products with AI-driven technology.

“The basic concept of this collaboration is that Pervasive Technologies offers the technological support to develop advanced technology projects that aspire to be financed with these EU NextGen funds, while Leyton makes available its nearly 25 years of experience facilitating access to grants and subsidies of all kinds to companies and SMEs. This will allow companies, while remaining focused on their core business, to implement digital transformation projects or develop new products and services through innovation with AI,” explains Rodolfo Lomascolo, CEO and co-founder of Pervasive Technologies.

They are currently co-organizing a series of free online seminars. The first one will take place next Friday, September 17 at 10:30 am. The objective is to show first hand how the funds work, what kind of cases can apply and how to start the process to access these grants.

How AI can help your company long term

How can AI strategies help your company in the long term?

AI applications in different industries are growing steadily around the world and will undoubtedly revolutionize the industrial world in the coming years.

According to a survey commissioned by the European Commission, the first on the acceptance of artificial intelligence by European companies, “awareness of artificial intelligence is almost universal”. The study shows that 78% of companies in the region know what artificial intelligence is; 15% are not clear and 7% say they do not know what it is. However, more than half of the companies surveyed (51%) do not use these technologies and have no plans to surf the wave.

The study -in which more than 9,000 European companies participated- shows that in the case of Spain, 40% of the companies surveyed have implemented at least one of these technologies.

But it also shows that both those who already use these tools and those who have not yet been encouraged to incorporate them face certain internal barriers. 56% of Spanish companies mention the labor market’s lack of training in these topics (programming, big data, robotics, etc.), while implementation costs discourage 66 % of national businesses. The complexity of algorithms and the resulting difficulties in understanding and trusting them are also mentioned.

At European level, the main strategy for incorporating these technologies is to opt for some form of outsourcing, by purchasing platforms (59%) or contracting third parties to develop them on a custom basis (38%). Only 20% opt for in-house adoption.

However, this post is not about the multiple benefits of the use and applications of AI in companies and industrial environments, but about something less obvious: the incorporation of these tools will be key in the “fourth industrial revolution”, but the real differential will be to do it according to a long-term strategy if we expect to see a real return on investment.

Whether they are digital natives or those facing migration, the multi-disciplinary teams that will implement these projects will need to define a strategy from the outset that answers nodal questions: how will the incorporation of AI help our department or company? How will it contribute to better serve our customers, improve our operations and, ultimately, win in the marketplace?

In the short term, AI approached as a series of point solutions without any fundamental improvement in issues such as data infrastructure can be more of a headache than an opportunity for the organization. At the same time, poor project selection, unrealistic ROI expectations, lack of strategic focus and understanding of AI maturity lead to the failure of 80-90% of AI projects.

But in the long run, the benefits will not be achieved with a single successful deployment, but with a transformation of the way the company operates and its vision of how it can win in the marketplace through AI.
To define a holistic approach, several factors will need to be analyzed:

Timeline: how many years does this vision cover?

What specific objectives and results does the company intend to achieve in that time horizon? This could be the opening of new lines of business, a basic transformation of who we serve and how, or simply goals related to growth, profits or market share that AI and digital technologies could help achieve.

Which lines of business, products or services that will incorporate AI appeal to or respond to a specific customer need? Which will be less important with AI? It is also necessary to consider the trends in each sector and how the company will adapt to them, as well as to analyze how AI will contribute to consolidate advantages in the market.

Which processes or operations involve more resources and which have a greater impact on overall company performance or as a driver of growth? In which areas or processes could automation add efficiency and which could be redesigned or even eliminated altogether depending on the lines of business?

What data sources are important to the business, and how could they be improved or made more accessible, both in relation to current lines of business and future products or services?

Which markets and segments (defined by demographics or business criteria) or product lines would benefit from AI? Which are the most important? This analysis may even open up new market opportunities or make irrelevant ones relevant.

In addition to answering these questions, it is important to keep in mind that this vision must be alive and evolving, so it is advisable to review it in depth at least once a year.

Finally, it will be very important throughout the process of ideation, planning and deployment of any AI project and strategy that it be considered unfailingly as part of a broader digital transformation.

Arrow and NVIDIA devices ensure that all of these processes are performed with the appropriate accuracy and speed of image processing.

Tests have concluded that the reliability and responsiveness of the model have been rated as optimal by both partners, as well as ensuring adaptability to the needs of each installation, with the ability to integrate with existing cameras and video management software. In turn, the solution allows for indoor and outdoor installation, the control of up to 80 cameras from a single server, the creation of customized attention areas for each business and the configuration of alarms in the event of an incorrect arrangement of PPEs.

In 2019, the National Institute for Safety and Health at Work (INSST) recorded a total of 650,602 occupational accidents with sick leave in Spain. A large part of them took place in the manufacturing, construction, hospitality, transportation and warehousing sectors and were related to the incorrect use of PPE.

“Pervasive Technologies strongly believes that the implementation of AI adapted to each work environment will significantly reduce these figures. Our partnership with Arrow Electronics will help companies create a safe environment for workers and boost their business productivity,” says Rodolfo Lomascolo, CEO and co-founder of Pervasive Technologies.

The solution can be purchased pre-installed on Arrow Electronics servers through its website.
