Archives Portal Europe: Automated topic detection tool

Date: 11 February 2022
Time: 2 pm (CET)
Venue: Eventbrite/Online

The Archives Portal Europe, the online repository of the European archival heritage, has created an automated topic detection tool to expand and enhance the keyword research conducted by its users.

The portal aggregates archival descriptions from more than 30 countries and 25 languages – all searchable through one simple search engine. In order to help researchers navigate this Babylon of languages, the Archives Portal Europe has created an automated topic modeling tool that expands the keyword search of a single user, to create semantic connections with other documents in different languages.

In order to receive fundamental and constructive feedback for the development of the new tool, the Archives Portal Europe has organised a testing session to which we kindly invite our community to take part in.

If you are interested in digital archival research or are researching a specific topic in archives, or you are simply curious to learn more about topic detection, please join this testing session on 11 February at 2 pm (CET) by simply registering on Eventbrite.

Little token for motivation: Prizes await the participants!
