D4.8 and D5.6 have been finalized

Two new deliverables have been finished by the EmerGent consortium.

D4.8 describes the implementation of the Processing and Analysis Subsystem (PAS) of EmerGent, which contains the data enrichment, information mining (IM) and information quality (IQ) components. This document expands on D4.6 by describing how the designs therein have been incorporated into a live system. It describes a processing pipeline based on association of components by a simple standard RESTful interface as well as a controller that coordinates the operation of the pipeline. The input of the system is a batch of messages collected from various social media channels. The output will have been filtered to improve relevance and augmented with useful information on the quality of information supplied. The system is intended to be used alongside a user interface component that presents the results of processing and allows the parameters of the processing pipeline to be altered.

D5.6 as a technical document provides an updated version of implementation and verification activities performed after D5.5 publication. The main components of the EmerGent IT system analysed in this document are the EmerGent Mobile APP (EMA) and ES interface (ESI), even if additional components such as the Dissemination Service (DS) and the Processing and Analysis Subsystem (PAS) are briefly described to explain how they interact with EMA and ESI.
