ATRIUM: Advancing FronTier Research In the Arts and hUManities

Start Date: 01/01/2024
End Date: 31/12/2027
Funding: Horizon 2020 / RIA Research and Innovation action
Project Leader: Gavriilidou Maria

ATRIUM will exploit and strengthen complementarities between leading Εuropean infrastructures: DARIAH, ARIADNE, CLARIN and OPERAS in order to provide vastly improved access to a rich portfolio of state-of-the-art services available to researchers across countries, languages, domains and media, building on a shared understanding and interoperability principles established in the SSHOC cluster project and other previous collaborations. Research infrastructures in the Arts and Humanities domain must cater to a very wide range of stakeholders and offer services that cut across discipline-specific boundaries.

ATRIUM will tackle this heterogeneity within the Arts and Humanities by going deep and wide at the same time: on the one hand, ATRIUM will make a groundbreaking contribution to the consolidation and expansion of services, including data services, specifically in the field of archaeology, while, on the other hand, facilitating access to a wide array of essential text, image and sound-based services that benefit a number of other disciplines within the Arts and Humanities, and cover all phases of the research data lifecycle (creating, processing, analyzing, preserving, providing access to and reusing).

ILSP’s contribution

ATHENA (ILSP and IMIS) participates in the following tasks, coupled with the relevant demonstrators:

  • speech recognition on non-native English speech and noisy/low-quality recordings,
  • application of automatic linguistic processing workflows (tokenization, PoS tagging lemmatization, and named entity recognition on the transcribed spoken data produced
  • overview of data and metadata formats, schemas, ontologies and controlled vocabularies used in the Arts & Humanities domain, aiming at semantic interoperability between catalogues and repositories
  • metadata harmonisation and enrichment – geotagging of texts and collaborative reusable map annotation
  • ontology-driven extraction of work processes from published articles in Archaeology and other Humanities fields.

Additionally, ATHENA/ILSP undertakes a significant activity which aims to facilitate access to research facilities in the Art and Humanities with a complimentary offer of advanced technologies and local expertise; to enhance researcher mobility and cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer of best practices throughout Europe; and to provide specific transnational training and access linked to the new types of Arts and Humanities data showcased in the project.
