Italian Strengthening of Esfri RI Resilience (ITSERR)

The project is implemented to:

  • strengthen the RESILIENCE RI in its preparatory phase, through its national institutional dimension, scientific positioning, technical development and public perception;
  • support excellence by putting the more qualified scholars and researchers in Religious Studies and ICT at the service of the excellence in research in Religious Studies, producing disruptive innovation for the domain;
  • advance efficiency with the improvement of the accessibility to data, facilities and experts belonging to the national context and promoting data FAIRness;
  • expand the RI national network of researchers, users and stakeholders, and be able to translate the national experience on other national contexts and at the European level;
  • enhance operativity by offering new services and tools that are ready to be accessed by the end of the project and can thus rapidly enable new research scenarios and
  • attract scholarship, research and industry to leverage the Italian scientific community of Religious Studies towards a more innovation-oriented research methodology.

AImageLab is mainly involved in the WP6 "YASMINE - Yet Another visual-Semantic Metascraper for Intelligent kNowledge Extraction" which has the objective to develop a visual-semantic metascraper that combines semantic and mapping layers in order to extract knowledge from a specific site and create a new data structure ready to be exported to multiple output formats for further scientific processing. YASMINE incorporates the ability of scraping and enriching visual and audio data, by using Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligent algorithms to automatically extract additional information that is converted into metadata. YASMINE is designed for two case-studies that are unique to religious studies: sanctuaries and the killings of orants (1982-).
