MeisterLabs joins Mendeley, University of Passau and Know-Center to conduct Semantic Web research in €2.4 million CODE project

MUNICH — 2012-06-21 — CODE, a recently started research project funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), will investigate how facts can be extracted from 40 million research papers, visualized, and interlinked with existing knowledge bases on the Web. Over the next two years, mind mapping innovator MeisterLabs will join forces with researchers from the Know-Center (Austria) and the University of Passau (Germany) and the distinguished UK-based web startup Mendeley to re-shape access to scientific knowledge.
"In Sir Isaac Newton's words: We're standing on the shoulders of giants," says Prof. Dr. Michael Granitzer, scientific coordinator of CODE. "Research of the future requires knowledge of the research of the past. But do we really know what we know? Every day, humanity discovers new findings on the inner working of the world we are living in. We identify new drugs or discover new, more efficient mobile communication technology. However, keeping pace with reading the exponentially growing amount of science literature becomes nearly impossible."
CODE ("Commercially Empowered Linked Open Data Ecosystems in Research") will enable users to gain new insights through the provided facts and to share their discoveries with colleagues. These discoveries can be of high value when comparing different drug studies, to visualise research trends, or to organise contradicting facts on the performance of different algorithms.
At the technical core of the project, new Natural Language Processing technologies will be developed by the Know-Center which crowdsource fact extraction on scientific literature via Mendeley's platform. The extracted facts will be integrated into the Linked Data cloud by the University of Passau and organised in mind maps in the award-winning MindMeister platform.
Crowdsourcing will enable CODE to build a unique knowledge base fuelled by facts and findings contained in scientific literature. The developed technology will bootstrap a marketplace around research data, generating a large, high-quality, machine-readable scientific fact database empowering researchers to “stand on the shoulders of giants” once more.

Using integrated Skype calls, they can throw around new ideas and put them down on "paper" at the same time. Maps can be imported from and exported to standard desktop mind mapping applications such as MindManager and FreeMind, or even as a document outline or image file. Community features such as tagging and change notifications (also via Twitter) make MindMeister all the more useful for global collaboration. MindMeister runs in a web browser, no plugins or additional software required.
