Cross-lingual Event-centric Open Analytics Research Academy

Objective

With a rapidly increasing degree of integration among the European countries, a rising number of events, such as Paris shootings and Brexit, strongly impact the European community and the European digital economy across language and country borders. This development results in a vast amount of event-centric multilingual information available from different communities in the news, on the Web and in social media. Cross-lingual technologies to efficiently access, analyse and interact with this information are of utmost importance for various stakeholder groups across Europe, including digital humanities, memory institutions, publishers, media monitoring companies and journalists.

The Cleopatra ITN offers a unique interdisciplinary and intersectoral research and training programme addressing these challenges. The main objectives are to: 1) Facilitate advanced cross-lingual processing of event-centric textual and visual information on a large scale; 2) develop innovative methods for efficient and intuitive user access and interaction with multilingual information; 3) facilitate large-scale analytics of multilingual event-centric information and cross-cultural studies; 4) educate a group of top-level scientists with unique interdisciplinary and intersectoral expertise in multilingual information science who will be enabled to take leading roles in research and industry in the future; and 5) establish an interdisciplinary curriculum for cross-lingual information analytics.

The main outcomes of Cleopatra include: 1) novel methods for event-centric cross-lingual processing; 2) highly innovative user interaction paradigms for multilingual information; 3) open large-scale data sets and software components for a variety of EU languages; and 4) an interdisciplinary curriculum and educational materials. Overall, Cleopatra will contribute to the European digital economy in several application domains and strengthen the European position in multilingual information science.
