The upcoming "VIVO Talks!" session will cover two topics: the creation of a visual research topic map for the SAMURAI catalogue and an introduction to the Materials Data Platform (DICE) at the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) in Japan.
As research information expands, the utilization of natural language processing (NLP) to create a visual research topic map for materials science researchers has become increasingly important. The visual representation of research topics displays the connection between researchers and related topics, with the aim of identifying potential collaborators and increasing research collaborations. Dr. Sae Dieb (ORCiD) from the Energy Materials Design Group will demonstrate the application of this approach to SAMURAI, a directory service for NIMS researchers. He will discuss the application of natural language processing in the "VIVO Talks!" session. The objective is to utilize this technology to visualize output topics for each researcher in the SAMURAI catalogue, which is a repository of researchers connected to external databases and institutional repositories. The aim is to improve the absorption of information for the general audience and encourage collaboration.
During the session, Dr. Dieb will also introduce the NIMS DICE platform. This platform is responsible for handling materials data from the point of entry to the point of exit. The platform implements high-throughput and high-quality data collection and registration systems to obtain data from various sources, including experimental instruments, literature, and repositories. The collected data is then stored and interconnected using informatic techniques such as RDF and Linked Data to add value to the stored data.
“VIVO Talks!” with Dr. Sae Dieb will be held on 23 March 2023 from 10-11 am CET. The event series is hosted by the “VIVO Research Information Platform” project team at the Berlin University Alliance.
