Bjørnar Tessem: The PediaCloud prototype
October 15, 2014. Tid: 13:15 - 14:00
Bergen Journalism Lab invites you to a lunch seminar, where Professor Bjørnar Tessem will present PediaCloud. This is an app for smartphones where location is used associatively with search in DBpedia to present word-clouds to the user.
PediaCloud is a mobile application that uses word clouds as access to location based content retrieved from Wikipedia. The solution that is used in the software is developed with semantic technology. Some observations from a user study in London will be presented. Tessem explains how one uses located and chained information to make a word cloud where the user can click on the words.
The prototype can be further developed. There will be a discussion of how the solution in PediaCloud could be used on journalistic content.
