abstract = {We present Resources2City Explorer (R2CE), a tool for representing file systems as interactive, walkable virtual cities. R2CE visualizes file systems based on concepts of spatial, 3D information processing. For this purpose, it extends the range of functions of conventional file browsers considerably. Visual elements in a city generated by R2CE represent (relations of) objects of the underlying file system. The paper describes the functional spectrum of R2CE and illustrates it by visualizing a sample of 940 files.},

    abstract= {In this paper, we present LTV, a website and an API that generate labeled topic classifications based on the \textit{Dewey Decimal Classification} (DDC), an international standard for topic classification in libraries. We introduce nnDDC, a largely language-independent neural network-based classifier for DDC-related topic classification, which we optimized using a wide range of linguistic features to achieve an F-score of \numprint{87.4}\%. To show that our approach is language-independent, we evaluate nnDDC using up to 40 different languages. We derive a topic model based on nnDDC, which generates probability distributions over semantic units for any input on sense-, word- and text-level. Unlike related approaches, however, these probabilities are estimated by means of nnDDC so that each dimension of the resulting vector representation is uniquely labeled by a DDC class. In this way, we introduce a neural network-based \textit{Classifier-Induced Semantic Space} (nnCISS).},

CEDIFOR verlängert

CEDIFOR wird bis Ende 2019 vom BMBF gefördert

Unser Verlängerungsantrag für Phase 2 war erfolgreich

CEDIFOR wurde zunächst von Dezember 2014 bis Ende 2017 vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) als eHumanities Zentrum gefördert. Nach erfolgreicher Begutachtung der Ergebnisse dieser ersten Phase und des Konzepts für die zweite Phase wurde kürzlich die Förderung bis Dezember 2019 verlängert.

Der Schwerpunkt wird in den kommenden zwei Jahren auf der Konsolidierung der in der ersten Phase geschaffenen Strukturen liegen. Insbesondere soll CEDIFOR zu einer dauerhaften Einrichtung ausgebaut werden. Mehr Information folgen in Kürze.
