Many organizations have co-created with us through our innovation services
The goal of Innovation Services is to analyze a shift in consumer behavior, a challenge, an opportunity, or a new technology. Innovation services are typically 1-2 workshops in which the topic is analyzed and evaluated. In the second stage, alternative plans of action are created and a ideal solution is proposed.
“Opportunities happen in the overlap of technological and behavioral change”

The first step in service design is to understand the needs of the customer. This can be done through interviews, surveys, and other research methods
Once the needs of the customer are understood, the next step is to evaluate the situation and create a set of criteria. Multiple approaches are brainstormed and evaluated.
A concept is created after a set of criteria has been established and the ideal approach can be chosen. Depending on the concept of work it can be a prototype, video or a full app.
Voice recognition on the edge
Airbus’ Critical Communication division asked Kwork to analyze, brainstorm and build pilots of new use cases for their Tactilo Dabat.
After analysis of the use environment and existing apps, evaluation of alternative ideas, we proposed speech recognition app to support reporting of incidents during missions. It is a critical issue needed by first responders, in order to quickly report incidents while also monitoring their surroundings.
The app was demoed in 2018 in Munich, Germany on actual Tactilon Dabat devices. Unlike existing which use cloud services for voice recognition this app used keyword recognition on the device with voice recording for complex reports and voice recognition on private cloud for added security.

Ministry of Education in Finland
The Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture asked for innovative solutions to prevent youth from becoming marginalized, and to find opportunities for recreational activities. Recreational activities at a young age have a significant impact on preventing marginalization.
The solution was a mobile application that uses artificial intelligence to map the interests, opportunities for movement, and location of young people in order to suggest recreation near them.
The demo application was implemented as a mobile application using React Native technology. The artificial intelligence was implemented as a cloud service. The mobile application server was implemented using an .NET Core Web API interface.
