Vassilis Papataxiarhis (M) received his B.Sc. in Informatics from the Department of Informatics & Telecommunications at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (UoA), Greece in 2006 and his M.Sc. (with Honours) in the area of "Advanced Information Systems" from the same department in 2008. He has been an active researcher of UoA in the fields of AR and Mobile Computing since 2005. He is the CEO of Intellia start-up and a a member of the Communication Networks Laboratory (CNL) of UoA.
Even if Intellia is a newly emerged company founded in 2016 we have already completed a nationally funded project about AR training in naval environments (i.e., frigates and flagships) for Hellenic Navy and Hellenic Ministry of Defence (NAFTES project) and two H2020 Open Call projects about AR experimentation in 5G and wireless networks. In EXPERIENCE (SoftFIRE H2020 FIRE+ project), our researchers developed four different AR applications based on cutting edge frameworks (i.e., ARCore, ARKit, HoloToolkit, Vuforia) and they performed extensive stress testing for the assessment of network performance under a wide range of real-world scenarios. Sample of the work conducted in this project can be found in Youtube. rnThe company has recently launched HOLORUN, a Mixed Reality application for MS HoloLens directly connected to the RUN247 web portal visualizing the maps and POIs for running events. Finally, AURORA is about dynamic AR scenarios for training using user-defined target images.
