The conference for intelligent content solutions

QURATOR 2020 – Conference on Digital Curation Technologies

Exploring the Future of Digital Communication 

20-21 January 2020, Berlin, Germany 

These days, those who don't communicate digitally simply aren't noticed. The result: More and more content has to be edited for a wide variety of devices in the shortest possible time - information management is increasing dramatically. To ensure that companies and organisations keep afloat in everyday life, the QURATOR project is working on an innovative approach: Curation technologies based on artificial intelligence support knowledge workers, media managers and business strategists in enriching and structuring digital content with machine-readable data and using it profitably.

At the conference, fields of application for various industries and areas such as media, cultural heritage, healthcare, logistics, energy and industry were presented. In workshops the participants were able to test the first demos and tried out concrete application scenarios with the QURATOR experts - for storytelling and exhibition curating, risk monitoring, process and knowledge management, personalised medicine and other promising application areas.

Thanks to all participants, speakers and our partners and supporters we're looking back on two successful and inspiring conference days on the newest developments and potentials of digital curation technologies!

QURATOR 2020 was one of the first conferences on state of the art technologies in digital curation. It is a collaborative platform scientiest and decision makers can aquire knowledge about different applications and AI technologies in digital curation from.

Two days, one goal - Program

The conference took place on two days. On the first day, the QURATOR partners presented their projects and provided insights into the current status of the research results. On the second day, use cases were developed specifically for the industry, media, culture and health sectors.

As digital communication is becoming more and more important, organisations struggle to manage content, data and knowledge. Content is often stored in several different systems making it difficult to find the relevant information quickly. Meta data of digital assets lack the quality necessary for editorial use. A growing amount of unstructured data is lost for knowledge management preventing organisations from gaining insights into their business processes and supply chains. The solution? Curation Technologies.

Exploring the future of digital communication

It's all about digital curation technologies

The conference provides a forum on the use of digital curation technologies in application domains  for, e.g., media, journalism, logistics, cultural heritage, health care and life sciences, energy, industry. Of particular relevance are papers that demonstrate the applied use of digital curation technologies and tools in domain-specific use cases and that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as Artificial Intelligence and Semantic Web, data analytics and machine learning, information/content and knowledge management systems, information retrieval, knowledge discovery, and computational linguistics.
