KMi needs two Research Assistants or Research Associates (depending on qualification) to work on the EU-funded project - DECIPHER.
The project aims to allow users, whether museum staff or members of the public, to assemble, visualise and explore heritage objects, and the underlying knowledge structures that connect and give them meaning. As part of this work, we have been developing StoryScope, a web-based environment for organising heritage objects, their associated stories and underlying personal and historical events. We have also developed an ontology for describing museum stories and presentations.
You should have knowledge and interest in the areas of web technology, the semantic web and artificial intelligence to help us further develop the StoryScope environment and the intelligent assistance it can provide for finding museum resources and building engaging presentations. The work will involve collaborating both with the local project team in KMi and also European partners of the DECIPHER project.
