OECD trials with UNSILO to improve content discovery and collection-building
- 26 Jan 2018

UNSILO and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have worked together on a proof of concept designed to improve content discovery and collection-building from the hundreds of thousands of books and papers available on the OECD Publishing platform, using UNSILO's artificial intelligence technology. The solution is delivered using UNSILO's concept extraction engine, which uses semantic tools and machine learning to extract and analyse the key concepts from OECD's publications. The UNSILO tool works in any subject domain, and the concepts extracted do not require a pre-existing taxonomy or classification system.

The first deliverable of the Proof of Concept is based on UNSILO Classify, a desktop application that can automatically create subsets of existing collections around any broad or narrow subject. Classify provides easy and quick means to create and maintain new and innovative content packages that can support communication and dissemination activities, without losing control of the process. The tool not only provides for the selection of content to be adjusted, but also enables the in-house subject matter experts to control the degree of automation of the subject extraction, thereby reducing the cost and time of manually creating collections of content.

UNSILO, based in Aarhus, Denmark, is an artificial intelligence software company that develops advanced tools for text understanding and processing. UNSILO tools deliver dramatic workflow improvements by reducing processing time, while at the same time improving quality and accuracy. The UNSILO Document Enrichment service forms the basis of over 20 separate functional solutions and APIs for publishers, including identifying trending topics as they emerge, improving the quality of document abstracts, and locating relatedness, including related content, similar journals or matching experts.

EDP Sciences joins the Initiative for Open Citations
- 25 Jan 2018

Not-for-profit publisher EDP Sciences has joined the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC), a collaboration between scholarly publishers, researchers, and other interested parties, to promote the availability of data on citations that are structured, separable, and open.

I4OC project promotes the unrestricted availability of citation data by asking publishers to ensure that references within academic articles are made publicly available. This then allows for references to be distributed without restriction through Crossref's services, and made available to all.

I4OC project aims to create a global public web of linked scholarly citation data which will enhance the discoverability of published content. Build new services over the open citation data, for the benefit of all key stakeholder groups: publishers, researchers, funders, academic institutions, and the general public. Create a public citation graph to explore connections between disciplines and the evolution of ideas and new disciplines.
