I work in BBC R&D, where we’re investigating new ways of publishing archive content, using a combination of automatic interlinking and user feedback. The use-case we’re focusing on to validate (or invalidate!) this approach is the BBC World Service archive, and you can see the results of our experiments in this prototype (registrations are currently open – please sign up and let us know what you think). We wrote about the prototype in a bit more details here, here and here.
From various events and conferences I’ve attended over the last year, there seems to be an increasing interest in trying to get the best of both humans and machines to help annotate and interlink large archives, so I would like to propose a session on that topic. This sessions should probably focus on real use-cases and lessons learned, as well as generating new ideas.
Very much looking forward to attending my first LODLAM!
