  • RISULTATO

Past and existing efforts for digital recapturing and preservation of European cultural and scientific heritage have consumed significant effort and resources for the digitisation, characterisation, and classification of content. Digital libraries have thus emerged providing electronic access for many communities of users to available information of their discipline. What has never been targeted, however, is a digital library that draws content from one domain and makes it available to the users of another.
The proposed project approaches this need by introducing the concept of a Cross-Discipline Digital Library Engine. Papyrus intends to be a dynamic digital library which will understand user queries in the context of a specific discipline, look for content in a domain alien to that discipline and return the results presented in a way useful and comprehensive to the user. Papyrus intends to showcase this approach with a specific pair of disciplines which can be illustrated as an apparent need and may prove to be an immediate exploitation opportunity even on its own. This proposed use case is the recovery of history from news digital content.
To realise these objectives Papyrus brings together expertise from 6 EU countries including: 4 research organisations with specific expertise in knowledge management, AI and query analysis and semantic multimedia analysis; two research organisations experts in the history of science; two worldwide leaders in the provision of news; a coordinator experienced in realising such RandD and commercial projects and the world leader in the market of search engines.
