Projects

  • VRE4EIC

    Logo of the VRE4EIC project

    VRE4IEC is a EU H2020 project that aspires a Europe-wide interoperable Virtual Research Environment. I lead workpackage 5 on policies for privacy, security and trust within a VRE.

  • ION

    Screenshot of the ION online demo

    The project Images and Text in Online News (ION) is funded from two Amsterdam Data Science student assistant grants in 2015 and 2016. Our aim is to support a large scale analysis of images used in online news. For this purpose, we have constructed and made available the ION corpus, which is the basis of the ION demo.

    Collaborators: Thomas Mensink (UvA), Demond Elliott (UvA).
    Current student assistant: Oliver Becher.

  • EURECA

    Logo of the EURECA project

    EURECA (Enabling information re-Use by linking clinical REsearch and Care) is a 10M € EU FP7 project. The goal is to enable seamless, secure, scalable and consistent linkage of healthcare information residing in electronic health record (EHR) systems with information in clinical research information systems, such as clinical trials. I was workpackage leader of WP 6 on Applications, semantic reasoning and decision support. Here is a video about this work package.

  • ImREAL

    Logo of the ImREAL project

    ImREAL is an EU FP7 project on adaptive simulated learning. The main challenge is to connect the learning experience in the simulated environment with the real world and day-to-day job practice of the learners.

    During 2010/2011 I've been workpackage leader of WP4 on extended learner and context modeling. In this workpackage, we created semantic models to represent users and their real world context, explored ways to fill these models with usage data, and developed ontology alignment methods to match these models to Linked Open Data. Amongst other things we worked on U-Sem, a framework for the semantic enrichment and mining of people's profiles from usage data on the Social Web.
    See also the project description in Cordis.

  • Political discourse in news

    VUA Network Institute Logo

    Academy Assistant project, funded by the VUA Network Institute, together with Wouter van Atteveldt and Antske Fokkens. The focus is on NLP techniques, in particular sentiment analysis, to analyze and compare political debates and news.

  • QHP

    Amsterdam Data Science logo

    The project Quantifying Historical Perspectives on WWII was funded by Amsterdam Data Science, 2014-2015. In this project we aim to quantify different perspectives on historical events. Check out our demonstrator or the paper about it at the TPDL conference.

  • ShiftPol

    VUA Network Institute Logo

    Academy Assistant project, funded by the VUA Network Institute. Does the relation between political logic and media logic shift over time? In the ShiftPol project Laura Hollink, Wouter van Atteveldt and three student assistants work on this question, building on the results of the PoliMedia project and the AMCAT toolkit.

  • LiMePoDa

    VUA Network Institute Logo

    Academy Assistant project Linking media and political data on pension reforms ran from 2012-2013 and was funded by the VUA Network Institute. The project aims to explain when proposals lead to debate in the media and how debates in the media lead to proposals by politicians. See also our website.

  • MultiMedian E-culture

    MultiMedian E-Culture logo

    I recommend everyone to play around with the E-Culture Web Demonstrator, which has won the Semantic Web Challenge 2006.

  • ImIK

    Cover of PhD thesis laura hollink on Semantic Annotation of Visual Resources 2006

    Interactive Disclosure of Multimedia, Information and Knowledge. From 2002 until 2006 I worked as a PhD student in this project. On the 16th of November 2006 I defended my PhD thesis, titled Semantic annotation for retrieval of visual resources [PDF].
