This group defines the technical, legal, policy and organisational challenges that TDM poses in the EU and worldwide, and will work towards borderless solutions.
This group is set up by the EU funded project OpenMinTeD, which aims to build an eInfrastructure making text and data mining (TDM) of EU content possible. The project started in June 2015 and is in the process of mapping the current opportunities and challenges for TDM worldwide.
This will be the first get-together of this group. Any institution interested in making their data available for text and data mining is invited to become a part of it.
