  • YDS - Your Data Stories

    The revolution in information technology over the last years has proven its ability to process huge amounts of data and made evident that big data can change the world. Open Government Data (OGD), from being an obscure possibility just five years ago, is spreading across the globe at a phenomenal rate, delivering the promise to spur innovation, to deliver better services for less money, to improve planning, to increase transparency, and to reduce corruption.

  • BigDataEurope - Integrating Big Data, Software & Communities for Addressing Europe's Societal Challenges

    BigDataEurope will provide support mechanisms for all the major aspects of a data value chain, in terms of the employed data and technology assets, the participating roles and the established or evolving processes. The effectiveness of the provided support mechanisms will be assessed in different domains pertaining to Europe’s major societal challenges with respect to the needs and requirements of the related communities. To this end, BigDataEurope focuses on providing an integrated stack of tools to manipulate, publish and use large-scale

  • CLARIN-EL - CLARIN ATTIKI - Support and development of Greek partners for the participation in the European Research Infrastructure Consortia

    CLARIN-EL aims at:
    • designing and implementing the Research Infrastructure (creation of software for the storage and disposal of Language Resources and Technologies, conversion of Language Resources and Technologies aimed at interoperability, description / documentation of Language Resources and Technologies according to the agreed metadata schema, list of available Language Resources and Technologies etc.), by adopting international standards and best practices geared towards interoperability of resources and tools

  • SEMAGROW - Data intensive techniques to boost the real-time performance of global agricultural data infrastructures

    As the trend to open up data and provide them freely on the Internet intensifies, the opportunities to create added value by combining and cross-indexing heterogeneous data at a large scale increase. To seize these opportunities we need infrastructure that is not only efficient, real-time responsive and scalable but is also flexible and robust enough to welcome data in any schema and form and to transparently relegate and translate queries from a unifying end-point to the multitude of data services that make up the open data cloud.

  • BioASQ - A challenge on large-scale biomedical semantic indexing and question answering

    BioASQ will push for a solution to the information access problem of biomedical experts by setting up a challenge on biomedical semantic indexing and question answering (QA). Biomedical knowledge is dispersed in hundreds of heterogeneous knowledge sources and databases; many of them are connected on the Linked Open Data cloud. Biomedical experts, on the other hand, are in constant need of highly specialized information, which they cannot easily obtain. To address their needs, an information system needs to "understand'' the data and answer efficiently the experts' questions.

  • NOMAD - Policy Formulation and Validation through non moderated crowdsourcing

    The ability to leverage the vast amount of user-generated content for supporting governments in their political decisions requires new ICT tools that will be able to analyze and classify the opinions expressed on the informal Web, or stimulate responses, as well as to put data from sources as diverse as blogs, online opinion polls and government reports to an effective use.

  • SYNC3 - Synergetic Content Creation and Communication

    SYNC3 will provide an intelligent framework for making more accessible the vast quantity of user comments on news issues. The project will structure the part of blogsphere that refers to running news stories, rendering it accessible, manageable and re-usable. The immediate target of SYNC3 is the news industry and social networks, but domains like commerce, tourism, e-science and business intelligence are likely to benefit from the resulting technology.

  • CASAM - Computer-Aided Semantic Annotation of Multimedia

    CASAM expects to facilitate the synergy of human and machine intelligence to significantly speed up the task of human-produced semantic annotation of multimedia content. The project will deal with the task of aggregating human and machine knowledge with the ultimate target of minimizing human involvement in the annotation procedure. Intelligent human-computer interaction is of central importance, and the concept of effort-optimized knowledge aggregation will be introduced. This as the task of reaching the desired result by requiring the least effort from the user.

  • BOEMIE - Bootstrapping Ontology Evolution with Multimedia Information Extraction

    The BOEMIE project proposes a bootstrapping approach to knowledge acquisition, which uses multimedia ontologies for fused extraction of semantics from multiple modalities, and feeds back the extracted information, aiming to automate the ontology evolution process. BOEMIE methodology BOEMIE advocates an ontology-driven multimedia content analysis (semantics extraction from images, video, text, audio/speech) through a novel synergistic method that combines multimedia extraction and ontology evolution in a bootstrapping fashion.
