In open science, the first step is to make publications and data openly available. Once it is truly openly available, it opens the way for text and data mining to make new discoveries. In relevance to scholarly content, there is a huge amount of text, containing lots of patterns and unexpected connections that are still hidden. If these connections and patterns were uncovered, this could lead to new discoveries, for instance in medicine, agriculture, social sciences or humanities. Text and data mining can reveal these treasures.
The workshop is divided into two parts that can be attended both, or you can pick one of them. The first part showcases successful TDM initiatives and infrastructures and a demo of a TDM platform. The second part consists of campfire sessions and focuses on how to open up content for TDM. Settle down in front of the fire and talk about overcoming differences between publishers and repositories, the steps of connecting content to a TDM platform and legal issues and assistance.
Part 1 (14:00-15:30): Applications of TDM
The first half of the workshop will address text and data mining (TDM) platforms, both public and commercial, for research related results. They will present architectures, solutions, barriers and lessons learnt, both on the technical and legal levels.
- Prof. Sophia Ananiadou - "Big Mechanism: deep reading for cancer biology"
- Robert Bossy - "What can semantic text-mining do for food quality improvement?"
- Haris Papageorgiou - "Data Analytics meets Socials Sciences:New Frontiers of collaboration"
- Manuel Noya - "Text mining"
Part 2 (16:00-17:30): Content and legal TDM issues
The second part will initiate the conversation about incentives for content providers to hook up to emerging TDM platforms/infrastructures, on the concrete steps they need to take and on the legal questions related to opening up content.
To raise awareness on the potential of TDM and of particular efforts in the research domain, to provide knowledge on how to overcome/bypass legal barriers, and to draft the first steps in a roadmap towards widely adopted implementations.
