An introduction to recordkeeping continuum

In this video, Barbara Reed gives an introductory presentation on the records continuum, and discusses its relevance for PERICLES with Mark Hedges from King’s College London, and Pip Laurenson and Anna Henry from TATE. The records continuum is a pioneering model for recordkeeping that regards it holistically as a continuous and dynamic enterprise, and this raised several parallels with the research themes and interests of...

Interviews with project partners - Part 1

PERICLES draws project partners from several different disciplines & domains. In the following videos a number of these partners are introduced and you can hear more about their role in the project and what they have found most engaging in their work so far. Please note a transcription of all of the videos can be downloaded here . In the first video you can hear an overview of our research from the Project Coordinator...

From Semantics of Change to Change of Semantics

On 19 May 2015 PERICLES partners ran a half day workshop devoted to the importance of dependency drifts in digital preservation and covered four interlocking research areas: the design of a OWL ontology called LRM (Linked Resource Model) to describe change and dependencies in evolving digital ecosystems on a high level; the application of the LRM to the representation of domain-specific knowledge , and the principle of...

PERICLES Extraction Tool (PET)

In this screencast we offer an introduction to PERICLES Extraction Tool (PET), an open source (Apache 2 licensed) Java software for the extraction of significant information from the environment where digital objects are created and modified. More information is available at the PERICLES GitHub page: https://github.com/pericles-project/pet

PERICLES Content Aggregation Tool (PeriCAT)

In this screencast we offer an introduction to PERICLES Content Aggregation Tool (PeriCAT), a framework which provides a set of Information Encapsulation techniques from different domains, and a decision mechanism to determine which of the techniques is the best one to use for a given user scenario. PeriCAT is an open source (Apache 2 license) Java software and can be downloaded from the PERICLES page on GitHub: https://github.com...

PERICLES Ontology Population tool (PROPheT)

In this short video we introduce PROPheT (PERICLES Ontology Population Tool), a novel instance extraction engine, for locating instances (realisations) of concepts and relations in a Linked Data source, filtering them and subsequently inserting them into a domain ontology. PROPheT offers three types of extraction-related functionalities (instance-based populating, class-based populating and instance enrichment), along with...

PERICLES seminar - Göteborg Book Fair, 22 September 2016

How can we access digital objects created 20 years ago and 100 years from now? Music, photographs, videos, scientific data and art are all examples of content which is now stored digitally. How are the institutions that are collecting enormous amounts of digital content – libraries, museums, archives and research institutes – going to make sure that the material is accessible in the future as well? 100 years from now, will we...

Acting on Change: New Approaches and Future Practices in LTDP

In this series of videos we offer some highlights from PERICLES final project conference 'Acting on Change: New Approaches and Future Practices in LTDP' , which took place at the Wellcome Collection Conference centre in London on 30 Nov - 1 Dec 2016. This conference took a closer look at what research is being carried out as regards the challenge of changing environments, and what solutions are being proposed in support of...

The EcoBuilder and Digital Ecosystem Modelling

This is an introduction to the Ecobuilder, a tool for the creation of Digital Ecosystem Models (DEMs) via Java API or via GUI developed by Anna-Grit Eggers with the University of Goettingen (Germany). The DEM is a means to express the network of dependencies, and interactions of entities in digital ecosystems. The tool has been developed within PERICLES, a four-year Integrated Project (2013-2017) funded by the European Union under...

PERICLES Technical Appraisal tool

This is an introduction to the PERICLES Technical Appraisal Tool, which was developed by Simon Waddington and Jun Zhang from King's College London with input from other project partners. The tool has been developed within PERICLES, a four-year Integrated Project (2013-2017) funded by the European Union under its Seventh Framework Programme (ICT Call 9). The PERICLES Technical Appraisal tool will be available by 31 March 2017 under...

A workshop on the use of Mediainfo, MediaConch and FFmpeg in the preservation of digital video

During late July 2016, Dave Rice and Ashley Blewer delivered two workshops at Tate Britain in London on the use of Mediainfo, MediaConch and FFmpeg in the preservation of digital video. These two workshops are a good example of the type of impact projects such as PERICLES can have and the resulting motivation they can engender, in this case leading on from the collaboration between Dave Rice and the PERICLES Project on...
