  • OpJ - Open Journalism

    Fake news emerges as an important problem for journalism and democracy, building on the growing loss of confidence in media. A potential solution could be to create more and better evidence-based stories that are supported by open data and readers can directly refer to original sources.

  • StoryBot - Automated workflows in news production towards robot-assisted journalism

    StoryBot aims to provide an integrated platform for automated news production and presentation (publications). We propose the idea of a bot that:
    • allows the creation of an editorial plan, with a list of topics of interest
    • collects and aggregates web content (including content from social media) in real time for each topic of interest, highlighting basic entities from each story
    • allows journalists to combine and edit content from various sources into a single story
    • publishes the news story in the format and channel chosen by the journalist

  • HOBBIT - Holistic Benchmarking of Big Linked Data

    Linked Data has gained significant momentum over the last years. It is now used at industrial scale in many sectors in which an increasingly large amount of rapidly changing data needs to be processed. HOBBIT is an ambitious project that aims to push the development of Big Linked Data (BLD) processing solutions by providing a family of industry-relevant benchmarks for the BLD value chain through a generic evaluation platform. We aim to make open deterministic benchmarks available to test the performance of existing systems and push the development of innovative industry-relevant solutions.

  • RADIO - Robots in assisted living environments: Unobtrusive, efficient, reliable and modular solutions for independent ageing

    Demographic and epidemiologic transitions have brought a new health care paradigm with the presence of both, growing elderly population and chronic diseases. Life expectancy is increasing as well as the need for long-term care. Institutional care for the aged population faces economical struggles with low staffing ratios and consequent quality problems.

  • 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

  • SentIMAGi - Brand monitoring and reputation management via multi-modal sentiment analysis

    Recent brand monitoring technologies rely mostly on the textual aspect of content to derive the under-lying public sentiment with respect to a brand, essentially ignoring the wealth of - constantly increasing - visual content. SentIMAGi will create a powerful brand monitoring and reputation management framework, exploiting multi-modal sentiment analysis methods and summariza-tion. The aim of the framework is to provide an efficient but complete view of the public senti-ment towards different aspects of a brand.

  • PYRONES - PYRo-mOdelliNg and Evacuation Simulation system

    Structural fires continue to pose a great threat towards human life and property. Due to the complexity and non-deterministic characteristics of a building fire disaster, it is not a straightforward task to assess the effectiveness of fire protection measures embedded in the building design, planned evacuation strategies and potential modes of response for mitigating the fire’s consequences.
