In the framework of the Action “RESEARCH – CREATE – INNOVATE”, which is co-financed by National (*) and EU Funds (**), the proposal titled Exploitation of Cultural Assets with computer-assisted Recognition, Labeling and meta-data Enrichment – ECARLE has been approved.
This project aims to create an innovative information platform to automate the recognition, analysis, labeling and metadata enriching of cultural assets, allowing organizations and libraries to easily create new layers of information on existing digitized documents, improving interoperability and reutilization, optimizing the dissemination to both the general public and the specialized researcher.
The project will also enhance the knowledge that exists in digital form on the “virtual shelves” of cultural organizations through computer science, standards and digital humanities procedures, resulting in an integrated solution that can be employed in Greece or in other countries. The project objective is to develop an integrated Software as a Service (SaaS) implement that can input digitized documents and automatically enrich with XML files compliant with the international standard Text Encoding Initiative.
