Supported by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI) in the framework of the Digital Scientific Library (BSN) and the Committee for Open Science (CoSO), the Visa TM project (Towards Advanced Text-Mining Services Infrastructure), led by INRA, was launched in June 2017 for a two-year period.
This project aims to study the conditions of production of high value-added TDM services based on semantic analysis by synergizing the interests and complementarities of the various partners: an IST operator (Inist), a research establishment (INRA) and a university (University of Montpellier).
OpenMinTeD was present since three of the main partners (Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, France, Athena Research & Innovation Center, Greece, Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing Lab (UKP) at Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany) of the project were invited and gave presentations, participating into fruitful sessions and discussions.
Claire Nedellec, presented VisaTM, focusing on bridging the gap between the needs and the solutions!
On the strategic side of TDM, applicable to broad communities, Natalia Manola from Athena Research & Innovation Center, pointed the need within EOSC, to use TDM to make publications and data smart and actionable through OpenAIRE and OpenMinTeD.
From research developers’ on TDM point of view, a very interesting talk about Open Development Strategy and data mining tools like DKPro Core (software components for natural language processing) and INCEpTION was given by Dr.-Ing. Richard Eckart de Castilho.
At the end, a talk by Sylvain Massip to imagine the future TDM services was presented collecting all the the outputs of the workshop dedicated to this topic at VisaTMDay. The ultimate dream: a service based on all the TDM services that can answer any natural language question !
