Welcome to the Newsletter page of OpenMinTeD
Stephane Schneider is IT project manager at the Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (INIST-CNRS). INIST has one of the most important collections of scientific publications in Europe and provides a range of information search services for science and higher education. Stephane tells about his work and what he expects for the future of TDM.
The Proposal for a Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market (the Proposal) contains a number of provisions intended to modernise EU copyright law and to make it “fit for the digital age”. Some of these provisions have been object of a lively scholarly debate in the light of their controversial nature (the proposed adjustment of intermediary liability for copyright purposes contained in Art. 13, see here at p. 7) or because they propose to introduce a new right within the already variegate EU neighbouring right landscape (i.e. the protection for press publishers contained in Art. 11).
The event ‘OpenMinTeD: Paving the way for text and data mining in science’ marks the official launch of the OpenMinTeD platform (www.openminted.eu, services.openminted.eu). We would like to invite you to join us for a live discussion on the way forward.
To join the event, a registration via Eventbrite is required here.
As part of the OpenMinTeD project, INRA has been working on a text mining application dedicated to food microbiology. This infographic will tell you the story.
With a tasty bite of cheese necessarily come some microbial strains. Some of them are well known, but the presence of others can puzzle researchers and they might want to investigate why they are there. A better understanding of microorganisms, their interaction and their adaptation to their environment are important issues for research and industry. It could help improve public health or develop innovative products.
To make sense of the huge amount of scientific text and data available, we need text and data mining (TDM). The European project OpenMinTeD has been paving the way for TDM in science by working on an infrastructure for the past three years. We would like to invite you to join us for our event in Brussels on May 24th. Learn about best practices in TDM, perspectives of different stakeholders, the GDPR and the future of TDM and OpenMinTeD.
Dr Jane Reed is Head of Life Science Strategy at Linguamatics, a UK-based company which makes TDM tools to help companies in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. She spoke to OpenMinTed about how TDM is being used to speed up drug discoveries and treat patients, and gave a vision for the future of text and data mining.
