Reflecting Knowledge Diversity

Contact: Maria Maleshkova

Project Status: completed


RENDER will provide a comprehensive conceptual framework and technological infrastructure for enabling, supporting, managing and exploiting information diversity in Web-based environments. Diversity is a crucial source of innovation and adaptability. It ensures the availability of alternative approaches towards solving hard problems, and provides new perspectives and insights on known situations . Diversity is one of the main credos of European culture and society, best exemplified by the official motto of the European Union: “United in diversity”. Equally important, embracing diversity in information management is essential for enhancing state-of-the-art technology in this field with novel paradigms, models, and methods and techniques for searching, selecting, ranking, aggregating, clustering and presenting information purposefully to users, thus alleviating critical aspects of information overload. RENDER will develop concepts, methods, techniques and technology to collect and manage information sources, identify and extract the diversity, represent and process diversely expressed information and to use diversity as integral concept.
