NOMAD (Policy Formulation and Validation through non moderated crowdsourcing)

Short Description: 

The ability to leverage the vast amount of user-generated content for supporting governments in their political decisions requires new ICT tools that will be able to analyze and classify the opinions expressed on the informal Web, or stimulate responses, as well as to put data from sources as diverse as blogs, online opinion polls and government reports to an effective use. To this end, NOMAD aims to introduce these different new dimensions into the experience of policy making by providing decision-makers with fully automated solutions for content search, selection, acquisition, categorisation and visualisation that work in a collaborative form in the policy-making arena. I do participate as member of the NCSR "Demokritos" group. NCSR has the technical management of the project.
Participants: University of the Aegean (EL), Google (IE), Athens Technology Centre (EL), NCSR "Demokritos" (EL), Critical Publics (UK), Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (DE), QWENTES (BE), Austrian Parliamentary Administration (AT), Jubilee Scotland (UK).
