FutureTDM: Improving Uptake of Text and Data Mining in the EU
FutureTDM is an action funded by the European Commission that aims to enable and encourage the uptake of text and data mining (TDM) in Europe. We involve stakeholders into discussions about their TDM experience; and analyse existing studies, policies, and economic and scientific trends that highlight the usefulness and potential of TDM across all economic sectors. We inform the community at large about our findings and create a knowledge sharing platform for information and experiences, to support and inspire innovation growth and technology interoperability.
