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.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
