Project TAMIS: Using AI to address the discoverability challenge

  • March 20, 2019
In this session, Christian Roy, President at Brix Labs gives an insight about the findings of Projet TAMIS, a project launched by Éditions du Septentrion (a history book publisher based in Québec City) in collaboration with Brix Labs (a consulting agency with a focus on technology applied to cultural industries) to address discoverability challenges. Researchers are using algorithms, open source code, and free or cheap APIs to extract descriptive information about books from books and to do it at a granularity and scale that would not be possible for humans. These findings could have huge potential to enrich traditional metadata, as well as create new ways to discover books.
