About Jochen Spangenberg
Vol. 5 in our series about REVEAL results is out. Here, the University of Koblenz outline what they have been up to over the past years. This ranges from topic modelling to user role analysis.
Another year is almost over. REVEAL, too, is nearing its formal end on 31 December 2016. For now, team REVEAL would like to wish all of you and your families a peaceful holiday season and all the very best for a healthy, happy and exciting 2017.
Part of the REVEAL work consisted of dealing with and researching the legal situation with regards to verification of user-generated content, the analysis of information residing in social networks, accessing respective APIs, making use of hosted content (e.g. for news reporting) and such like. It included shedding light on areas such as data protection, privacy, the “right to be forgotten” and much more. In this article of our “REVEAL Results series” we summarise work undertaken by CITIP at KUL Leuven in the legal domain, and point to respective resources.
In Volume 3 of our REVEAL Results series, we report about the work of IT Innovation. IT Inno, in short, were primarily active in geolocation work and developed the so-called “Journalist Decision Support System (JDSS).” Find out more in the article below.
Here’s the next article (Vol. 2) in our series about REVEAL results. In what follows NCSR’D-IIT (the National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos” – Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications, Athens) provide information about what they have achieved in the project. The focus of NCSR’D work was on community issues, stylometry and relation extraction.
In the series “REVEAL Results” we provide information about REVEAL outcomes and achievements. To kick off, we list a number of verification tools, technologies and services that were developed by project partner CERTH. You can trial them out yourself and access the code, if available.
On 7 December 2016, REVEAL was represented at the Monitoring Forum in Munich, Germany, with an information booth. Software AG used the occasion to showcase the enterprise application at this prestigious at social media monitoring and analytics conference. Here, Gabriele Strobel reports about the event and its outcome.
