PERICLES Concept Detection and SALIC

PERICLES Concept Detection and SALIC
In this blog post we introduce PERICLES Concept Detection (PeriCoDe) , a proof of concept prototype which facilitates image retrieval from large repositories by using the SALIC (Social Active Learning for Image Classification) approach to automatically train concept detectors without requiring significant annotation efforts. This prototype has been developed by the Multimedia Knowledge and... Read more >

The DEM is an ontology for modelling the interwoven relations, dependencies, and interactions of entities in digital ecosystems. Digital ecosystems encompass digital objects and their environments including their technical infrastructure, community... Read more >

Visualizing data to detect semantic change - Interview with Peter Wittek

Visualizing data to detect semantic change - Interview with Peter Wittek
In 2015 an open-source tool called Somoclu was developed by Peter Wittek from project partner University of Borås as an enabling key tool in PERICLES WP4 to study semantic drifts on scalable data collections, providing content maps in the hundreds for visual analysis. Semantic drift (also often referred to as “semantic change” or “evolving semantics”) is an active... Read more >

Exploring the potential of Information Encapsulation techniques

Exploring the potential of Information Encapsulation techniques
Information Encapsulation (IE) means the aggregation of information that belongs together. It can be carried out for diverse purposes at many different stages of the information lifetime. In the field of Digital Preservation (DP) the main IE scenario is the aggregation of a Digital Object (DO) with its metadata. IE techniques are usually domain independent, but they can be differentiated... Read more >
