Digital Environment for Cultural Interfaces: Promoting Heritage, Education and Research

Andrea de Polo, Alinari 24 ORE SpA, Italy

http://www.decipher-research.eu/

Abstract

DECIPHER proposes new solutions to the whole range of narrative construction, knowledge visualisation and display problems, with a high degree of future proofing. It will produce a step change in the process by combining much richer, event-based metadata with causal reasoning models. This will result in a reasoning engine, virtual environment and interfaces that can present digital heritage objects as part of a coherent narrative, directly related to individual searches and user contexts. This will allow users to interactively assemble, visualise and explore, not just collections of objects, but the knowledge structures that connect and give them meaning.
