NWO Grant for Maarten Marx & Project ACCESS
Maarten Marx of the Informatics Institute and Jaap Kamps of the Faculty of Humanities have received a grant of ca. € 500.000 for the project ‘ACCESS: Access to City Councils using Exploratory Search Systems’.
Open City Data has the power to connect the present, the past and the future, however much of the primary sources remain “hidden in the archives” because they are not linked to existing generic data. There are three principal barriers to realize this potential: first, most data is unstructured text and at a scale defying manual annotation; second, available structured data is encoded in ways preventing effective exploration; third, we miss a unifying perspective that can function as a framework to connect the wide variety of sources.
The funding by NWO is part of the Smart Culture: Creative Cities, Creative Industries program.
