Imagine Cup 2011 Winners

AUEB's students developed a system named "Touring Machine" that guides visitors in exhibition spaces by using either PCs or mobile phones.

It is worth mentioning that Vangos Pterneas and George Karakatsiotis had also won the Greek final of Microsoft's "Imagine Cup 2010".

Touring Machine uses NaturalOWL, a natural language generation system for OWL ontologies that has been developed by the Natural Language Processing Group of AUEB's Department of Informatics (see http://nlp.cs.aueb.gr/).
