The research goal is to develop an intelligent system to search information on legislation concerning intellectual property rights, consumer rights and digital rights. Its aim is to give legal operators and the general public easy access to this information.
Other project team members, apart from VAI, are the University of Chile, the Federal University of Santa Catarina (Brazil) and the Fasta de Mar del Plata School of Engineering (Argentina). The project is coordinated by Brazil’s Institute of Electronic Government, Legal Intelligence and Systems (IJURIS), which is the sponsor of the initiative.
The project will be based on the Internet information analysis system called Ontoweb, which enables contextualized searches.The project is to produce a new generation tool with built-in digital text processing technologies based on contextualized and structured search, dynamically contextualized knowledge representation and ontological engineering. According to VAI’s principal investigator, Jesús Cardeñosa, the tool will put a new slant on information retrieval technologies.
VAI’s inputVAI’s input to this project is underpinned by earlier research into on text-based ontology construction based on intermediate representations of text contents using UNL (Universal Networking Language) technology.
Another VAI input will be its documented experience in advanced information retrieval technologies based on structured networks of terms, like Wordnet, the lexical database developed by linguists at the University of Princeton’s Cognitive Science Laboratory.
Once concluded, the project will be applied to document search in domains like patents and industrial design office records, technology transfer agreements, trademarks, software and intellectual work. It will also be applicable to electronic fraud, virtual crimes, privacy and new technologies, electronic contracts, and electronic certification and digital signature, as well as software consumer law.
The one-year project was approved last December and will be ready for deployment in 2009.

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.
Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.
In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
