CODE (“Commercially Empowered Linked Open Data Ecosystems in Research”) aims to build a market for research data and based on the well-known publishing platform Mendeley (www.mendeley.com) to establish it. The starting point will be new Natural Language Processing technologies developed by the Know-Center. These allow that facts extracted from more than 40 million publications will be visualized and linked to existing knowledge on the World Wide Web. This should enable scientists worldwide to gain new insights and share them with colleagues. For example, it would be possible to compare different drug studies, to visualise research trends, or to organise contradicting facts on the performance of different algorithms.
Another project partner is MeisterLabs (www.mindmeister.com), a company partner of Know-Center.
The project started in May 2012 and lasts until 2014. More informationen about the CODE project can be found at code-research.eu.
