MORElab has worked in several projects dealing with co-creation, Linked Data and Data Analytics.

  • In the Spanish research project THOFU, the group undertook activity recognition over the PlaceLab dataset and opinion mining regarding hotels.
  • In the Spanish SABESS project, it worked on the recognition of emergency events over social networks. Analytic techniques were applied to a corpus of more than 3 million tweets.
  • In the City4Age H2020 project, MORElab undertook activity recognition and elderly profile resemblance analysis over data gathered at elderly homes.
  • Within the IES CITIES CIP project, MORElab applied analytics to understand the usage of urban apps by citizens.
  • Regarding Linked Data, MORElab created a platform for the provision of enterprise data within the ADAPTA project. This platform allowed extracting quality metadata about the stored datasets, to detect links among different datasets and is integrated with the OpenLink Virtuoso Linked Data server.
  • In the IES Cities project, the group worked on the creation of a set of urban apps that make use of data published by councils and that leverage the information generated and published by users (crowdsourcing).
  • In WeLive H2020 project, our Open Data Stack has been extended with a repository of micro-services consuming open data and a wizard-like tool that enables citizens to co-create and co-define public services, giving place to an Open Government solution.
  • In the SIMPATICO H2020 project, the team has collaborated in the adaptation of governmental e-services to the context and profile of different types of citizens. Our main duty has been the design and development of a Human Intelligence/crowdsourcing component, named Citizenpedia, which enables users to contribute with new concepts, questions and answers associated with public procedures.
