FactMiners is immensely pleased to announce our collaborative entry in the current "Data Edition" of the Knight News Challenge. With encouragement of our the Internet Archive, we have proposed an innovative idea and project implementation to partner with PRImA, the Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis Research Center to "Turn Text Soup into Smart Data in Newspaper & Magazine Archives".
The Knight News Challenge is unique in that it encourages entries from individuals as well as organizations, and international partnerships are no problem. So this potential source of funding for our applied research at the Internet Archive is most appreciated. FactMiners (so far) consists of two post-cancer #PayItForward Citizen Scientists in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA, and our two fellow Kindred Spirits on this project -- Apostolos Antonacopoulos and Christian Clausner -- are world-class research scientists at PRImA at the University of Salford, Manchester, UK.
We hope you have a few minutes to visit our entry to learn more about our project. We've prepared four "silent Ignite Talk" video slideshows to showcase our project. Your comments, questions, and especially, your "applause" (AKA a "like") are most welcome and appreciated.
