Article released on MESOC Toolkit
The University of Rijeka team published an article presenting the MESOC Toolkit technology, one of the outcomes of MESOC.
The MESOC Toolkit is a georeferenced visualization tool for analyzing impact on social value creation in the areas of health and well-being, urban regeneration, and social cohesion, and enables semantic search for content in the MESOC domain. Therefore, the presented research can serve as a prototype for measuring societal value by identifying recurrent pathways of transformational processes in society that reach beyond the selected field of art and culture.
The toolkit uses natural language processing methods such as keyword extraction, multi-label classification of texts, and detection of potential social impacts of cultural policies and practices, all trained on texts from open access academic publications.
