Information Technologies Group (GTI)

atlantTTic’s GTI Group researches smart network technologies, advanced applications, data analysis and artificial intelligence. Its strongly focused to technology transfer. Through the years it has set up collaborations with leading Galician IT companies (Televes, R, Optare, SAEC DATA, Quobis…) and Spanish (Telefonica, Indra, Abengoa, Cellnex…). Internationally, it stands out for its collaborations with Nokia and Oulu Smart City.

So far, it has created two spin-offs, one of which (Infinbox) remains active in the multimedia application market for hospital environments. In 2017, it was one of the seven Galician groups selected for the Ignicia program that rates R&D results. It is the Competitive Reference Group of the Xunta de Galicia since the beginning of the program. Together with the University of Vigo, it has been admitted to the international Open Air Interface consortium in Network Technologies and it is part of the executive committee of the COST Chipset for High Performance Computing (HPC) and Big Data. Its fourteen apps from the Accegal project, among which PictoDroid Lite stands out, help the communication of people with diversity and currently have around 90,000 downloads. Additionally, it has collaborated with the Spanish security forces in the pursuit of online crimes. In this context, its chatterbots technology has been the basis for the development of NegoBot and is currently used for the development of virtual assistants and tutoring in e-learning platforms.
