Today I went to Birmingham for the #JISCrestools programme meeting, organised by Christopher Brown and Torsten Reimer.
My presentation was on our latest #EnviLOD research on semantic annotation with Linked Open Data (DBPedia, Geonames, and GEMET) coupled with a demo of the Mimir-based semantic search over environmental science literature.
It was a really good meeting, especially seeing in more detail related work around:
- text mining and social science tools for analysing social media (COSMOS and the Twitter analysis workbench);
- SKOS-HASSET on turning the HASSET thesaurus into SKOS and publishing as Linked Open Data, as well as using it for automated indexing;
- the INSPIRES project on finding links between researchers;
- the Histore project which created training modules on text mining for historians, including GATE;
- the eHealth GATEWay to the Clouds project which will soon publish some GATE plugins for anonymisation of electronic patient records
- the COMTAX project on community-driven curation of taxonomic databases.
There were many other very interesting ones, just no time to write now about them all, but they are listed here.
