Malta – DINOS
DINOS for Smart Cities is a hybrid system, developed on Android mobile platform, which collects and manages information and aid users while travelling in a city by making use of localisation services. It incorporates an intelligent information system managing the status of the queues at the attractions automatically and thus distributing visitors among different attractions. The system is able to decide which queue is most flowing. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques, DINOS in return suggests attractions to the users depending on this status and provide recommendations based on the proximity of the user to the relevant attractions. Natural Language processing (NLP) is employed to protect the tourists since by reducing their use of the traditional methods. The system is composed of a central server receiving information from nodes in attractions and interacting with users on their mobile device. These recommendations are brought together through linked data on web sources.
* To bring the web to the hands of the end users while exploiting the advantages of Web 2.0 and resultant social networks as a source of data and the Semantic Web to collect and manage this data to provide personalised recommendations.
* To link us with the end user communities and testing the service in different innovation ecosystem environments, which are using actively the mobile technologies in tourism and city marketing and to highlight points of interest in cities inEuropeand/or outside
* To link the user communities and Android software developers for the further automated guide feature development and usage and requiring the creativity.
