FutureTDM: Increasing Uptake of Text and Data Mining in the EU

  1. 1. OpenDataMonitor Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action GARRI-3-2014 Scientific Information in the Digital Age: Text and Data Mining (TDM) Project number: 665940 Increasing Uptake of Text and Data Mining in the EU FutureTDM Reducing Barriers and Increasing Uptake of Text and Data Mining for Research Environments using a Collaborative Knowledge and Open Information Approach Brian Hole, Ubiquity Press, Open Repositories workshop, Brisbane, Australia 27 June 2017
  2. 2. Workshop overview • Introduction •Defining Text and Data Mining (Brian Hole) •An overview of the FTDM project and its aims (Brian Hole) •Results of the FTDM project (Freyja van den Boom) •Related projects: OpenMinted and CORE (Petr Knoth) • Discussion of workshop expectations • Hands on TDM (Petr Knoth) Tea • Experimenting with TDM • Q&A • Wrap up (Freya van den Boom) 2FutureTDM
  3. 3. “the discovery by computer of new, previously unknown information, by automatically extracting and relating information from different (…)resources, to reveal otherwise hidden meanings” (Hearst, 1999) What is TDM? 3 16 trillion gigabytes of data by 2020 (236% growth) Doubles every 2 years (Moores Law, 1965) Over 80% EU citizens have internet access (Eurostat 2014)
  4. 4. Potential of TDM 4 • Addressing grand challenges such as climate change and global epidemics • Improving population health, wealth and development • Creating new jobs and employment • Exponentially increasing the speed and progress of science through new insights and greater efficiency of research • Increasing transparency of governments and their actions • Fostering innovation and collaboration and boosting the impact of open science • Creating tools for education and research • Providing new and richer cultural insights • Speeding economic and social development in all parts of the globe (The Hague Declaration on Knowledge Discovery)
  5. 5. 5 TDM is not a homogeneous, self-contained, scientific domain, but rather a diverse and complex set of methods and technologies deployed in the framework of diverse disciplines and business activities The challenge 5
  6. 6. FutureTDM - the opportunity The FutureTDM project seeks to improve uptake of text and data mining (TDM) in the EU by actively engaging with stakeholders such as researchers, developers, publishers and SMEs. The use of content mining is significantly lower in Europe than in some American and Asian countries. The partners in the FutureTDM consortium share the ambition behind the EC’s call to develop policy and legal frameworks to reduce the barriers of TDM uptake and with it, promote the awareness of TDM opportunities across Europe. 6
  7. 7. FutureTDM 7 ELABORATE a legal and policy framework for future TDM, define policy priorities, specify a research agenda to foster the spread of TDM in various research fields within the EU BUILD a Collaborative Knowledge Base and an Open Information Hub combined on a web-based platform including intuitive tools ANALYSE current application areas and trends in TDM including statistics and key figures, collect relevant research and industrial projects and best practices ASSESS existing studies, legal regulations and policies on TDM within the European Union Main Objectives of FutureTDM INVOLVE all key stakeholders to identify practices, requirements, and specific challenges in the field of TDM INCREASE awareness of TDM to attract new target groups and science domains
  8. 8. 8 8 Remove existing legal, technological and skill barriers that prevent TDM technology from being adopted within the EU. Increase awareness about the social, economic and scientific benefits of TDM. Increase the Union’s competitiveness with other high-tech economies (like Japan, South Korea, US) by enhancing TDM adoption. Foster the adoption of TDM in science and economy. Lead to Research & Innovation policy that is more relevant and responsive to society Impact
  9. 9. 9 We were involved in the “Licenses for Europe” consultation by the European Commission in 2013. TDM from a publisher’s experience Legacy publishers present were lobbying against free access to TDM. As an unconditionally open publisher, Ubiquity Press is committed to making content available in all forms, for consumption by anyone and for any means. Allowing TDM on our platform is therefore standard practice, and we fully encourage it. Our position was that copyright reform with a clear exception for TDM was the best way to go forward, and that we would not support a licensing solution. The EC backed down from imposing a licensing solution through legislation. The EC committed to taking all positions into Account when reviewing the EU Copyright framework.
  10. 10. 10 Automatic download of all article XML, or a subset TDM from a publisher’s experience Features under development Automatic deposit of XML to repositories Journal and press-wide TDM resources for TDM, e.g. tool profiles Integration with TDM tools, e.g. ContentMine QuickScrape Investigating features to track TDM usage and use cases Investigating hosting of managed, TDM-optimized Hydra/Samvera repositories.
