Content mining is highly topical, in research as much as in business. So we are very happy to have Peter Murray-Rust, actual Shuttleworth Fellow and Co-Founder of the Open Science Working Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation, as guest for our sixth Open Science Working Group MeetUp of the Open Knowledge Foundation Austria. He will talk about his recent activites around contentmine, a project which tries to use machines to liberate 100,000,000 facts from the scientific literature.
In addition, there will be several talks about austrian projects that use or research in the field of content mining. Andreas Langegger tells about how to extract geographic information out of documents, Roman Kern shows recent research on information extraction from PDF’s and Marion Breitschopf presents how this techniques helped to provide information about political processes in Austria.
The talks and discussions will be held in english.
