The project calls for the design of a system of constructing profiles from individual traces extracted from resources held in digitized or “natively” digital heritage collections. By applying techniques of fictional and non-fictional narration, profiles will be constructed with extracted data, documentary enrichments, and fictional extensions, according to modalities borrowed both from crowdsourcing and data-mining.
Such a project has a three-fold purpose:
Louise MERZEAU, associate professor, (information and communication sciences), assistant director of the research team Dispositifs d’Information et de Communication à l’Ere Numérique – Paris, Ile-de-France (Dicen-IDF, EA7339)
