AI4SKILLS srl -BC is an innovative start up tech benefit established as commercial evolution of the "AGAPE" project, acronym of "Aquaculture Global AI Platform for Europe's Skill Passport" funded by the European agency for technological innovation EIT FOOD, created to respond to the demand for upskills and reskills in the aquaculture. https://agape-skillset.com/.
It has been established on 29.12.2021 pursuant to the Italian Law 208/2015 "AI4SKILLS", by three women entrepreneurs: Michela Cariglia, Milena Marzano and Francesca Biondo. AI4SKILLS srl-BC developed a collaborative platform SKILLSFOREU.COM, based on artificial intelligence, capable of enhancing the skills of human resources by activating processes of qualification, retraining and awareness of cross-knowledge between job supply and demand, responding to the effective search for market skills and soft skills.
The platform is based on an algorithm human centered capable of bringing for the first time to the market, to the educational approach, to consumers and to research ecosystems, an innovative model of interaction between stakeholders and to broaden the community on skills, capacities and competence at worldwide level and in real time. The skill service solution is a pattern composed by CV analysis, Carrier Path, Job Matching and aggregate report on Skill Map and Skill trends. All in one: it is able to generate the services by one click.
It is based on the development of “SKILLS PASSPORTS” for the creation of professional profiles of all levels based on skills and related enhancement for all the supply chains. The platform operates in a bottom-up way: the artificial intelligence analyses the CV based on the actual skills including soft skills and indicates which are the activities to be put in place to qualify or retrain to access a specific job market or improve one's own positioning or identifying new opportunities. On the other side it provides at training course on the catalogue or plugged in at global level. The AI engine generates on demand reports based on a georeferenced system in real time. The Skillset solution is able to offer services from the single users up to the decision making.
The value proposition of AI4SKILLS consists of the integration between the elaborative and orienting system of the AI and real human skills. Indeed, by introducing in the "form" their training experiences, work, skills and propensities, the AI will provide a diagram of which training courses and job requests are present and necessary or useful to reintegrate into the work context together with the job matching and reports.
